Love this post, and WOW can you imagine having only 2.5Million people in the entire Country! That is an amazing fact about our Country would be interesting to see what the other Countries populations were and what their growth has been!
What does the Fourth of July mean to you?
Do You explain this to your kids, or grand kids?
In our house, with my kids, anything associated to our Country being free is a big deal. Having served in the most powerful military in the world, these days mean a great deal to me, therefore to my kids.
There is estimated to have been 2.5 Million people living in the United States on this day 1776, and there is estimated to be 311 million now. That means that our Country has grown by an average of 1,312,767 people per year or 3,597 per day!
The American's Creed
I BELIEVE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AS A GOVERNMENT OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE; WHOSE JUST POWERS ARE DERIVED FROM THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED; A DEMOCRACY IN A REPUBLIC, A SOVEREIGN NATION OF MANY SOVEREIGN STATES; A PERFECT UNION, ONE AND INSEPARABLE; ESTABLISHED UPON THOSE PRINCIPLES OF FREEDOM, EQUALITY, JUSTICE, AND HUMANITY FOR WHICH AMERICAN PATRIOTS SACRIFICED THEIR LIVES AND FORTUNES.
I THEREFORE BELIEVE IT IS MY DUTY TO MY COUNTRY TO LOVE IT, TO SUPPORT ITS CONSTITUTION; TO OBEY ITS LAWS; TO RESPECT ITS FLAG; AND TO DEFEND IT AGAINST ALL ENEMIES.
"I volunteered as a Parachutist, fully realizing the hazards of my chosen service--and by my thoughts and by my actions will always uphold the prestige, honor and high esprit-de-corps of the only volunteer branch of the Army.
I realize that a Parachutist is not merely a soldier who arrives by parachute to fight, but is an elite shock trooper and that his country expects him to march farther and faster, to fight harder, to be more self-reliant and to soldier better than any other soldier. Parachutists of all allied armies belong to this great brotherhood.
I shall never fail my fellow comrades by shirking any duty or training, but will always keep myself mentally and physically fit and shoulder my full share of the task, whatever it may be.
I shall always accord my superiors fullest loyalty and I will always bear in mind the sacred trust I have in the lives of the men I will lead into battle.
I shall show other soldiers by my military courtesy to my superior officers and non-commissioned officers, by my neatness of dress, by my care of my weapons and equipment that I am a picked and well trained soldier.
I shall endeavor always by my soldierly appearance, military bearing and behavior, to reflect the high standards of training and morale of parachute troops.
I shall respect the abilities of my enemies, I will fight fairly and with all my might. Surrender is not in my creed.
I shall display a higher degree of initiative than is required of other troops and will fight on to my objective and mission, though I be the lone survivor.
I shall prove my ability as a fighting man against the enemy on the field of battle, not by quarreling with my comrades in arms or by bragging about my deeds, thus needlessly arousing jealousy and resentment against parachute troops.
I shall always realize that battles are won by an army fighting as a team, that I fight and blaze the path into battle for others to follow and to carry the battle on.
I belong to the finest fighting unit in the Army. By my appearance, actions, and battlefield deeds alone, I speak for my fighting ability. I will strive to uphold the honor and prestige of my outfit making my country proud of me and of the unit to which I belong."
