"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Veterans Day 2012

I am thankful to those that have served or are serving in our armed forces.  You have my deepest gratitude.

Here on the farm we appreciate that in every generation we must have those that don the uniform.

I am  what the military most likely refers to as the support network as I have been or am the wife, mother, daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, sister-in-law, aunt, and cousin of those that have worn or are proudly wearing the uniform of our armed services.  I am ever so humble for their service and cannot put into words my thoughts.

Army Mom Gazette

We went to Fort Bliss to attend our First's graduation from WLC (Warrior LeaderCourse).
The graduation was held here~

 We had a moment before the ceremony to greet our First~

There were 160 graduates. First(seated 6th in) was ranked #2 in class~ hooah!
 The Double Nickel Farm family/Go Army Family are very proud of this soldier!

The guest speaker was Command Sergeant Major Coleman. He said something that I thought was pretty amazing, he said, "If you walk past it, it just became your standard."  Thank you for taking the time to share this wisdom~

As blurry as this is you can see First in the middle. These soldiers were in motion!

Good job son~we are very proud of you!
 
Second and Fourth went with us. Third worked from 7pm to 7am at ER and could not attend. Love you Third and thank you for working so hard!
 

As we left Fort Bliss, I snapped a photo of the gate photo and think that this is a great reminder for us all, don't you think?

As I have had several emails about this I thought I would give a brief explanation. We live just a bit north of El Paso, Texas, in New Mexico. Traveling to El Paso is a hop, skip, and jump for us~and we are VERY thankful that our son is stationed so close to us!
