Rochester, N.Y.- Staff Sergeant Javier Ortiz-Rivera called his boys his little Marines. He loved playing with them and teaching them how to salute and stand tall. The youngsters used those lessons to bid their father farewell. Wearing tiny Marine uniforms made especially for them, they saluted their father as he was laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery. Seventy family members and friends attended the service to honor Sergeant Ortiz-Rivera. It was his wish to be buried there…

For the past 6 years, a German shepherd called Capitán has slept next to the grave of his owner every night at 6pm. His owner, Miguel Guzmán died in 2006. Capitán, the dog, disappeared while the family attended the fueral services. A week later reatives of Guzmán were visiting the cemetery when they were astounded to find the dog next to the owner's grave. The cemetery director says that the dog comes around each night at 6pm, and has done so for the past 6 years!

I AM AN AMERICAN. I BELIEVE IN GOD, FAMILY & COUNTRY. I DON'T HAVE MUCH TO GIVE~ BUT I'LL SHARE WHAT I HAVE. I HAVE BEEN BEATEN DOWN BY POLITICIANS, LIARS AND TRAITORS. THEY HAVE TRIED TO ERASE MY IDENTITY AND MY PRIDE. BUT I AM AN AMERICAN. I WILL SALUTE MY FLAG, RESPECT MY CONSTITUTION, AND HONOR MY OBLIGATIONS FOR THE RIGHT TO BE FREE. I WILL BOW ONLY TO GOD AND I WILL STAND IN TRUTH. THEY CAN NEVER TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME. From Debbie Murdock
