When a pilot went down or when American troops were injured in combat, the Jolly Green Giant was sent in to bring them home. I'm sure there are a million stories behind every single HH-53, but I want to take just a minute to focus on the overall mission.
You see, America is injured and needs rescuing. We need rescuing thats in it for the long haul, not a simple "quick fix."
Last Wednesday, my daughters school took a field trip to the Sacramento Air Museum. One of the aircraft we got to climb into was the Jolly Green Giant. Stepping into it, I noticed something that I love to see. On the ladder was an American flag with the words "Made in the USA" (you can see it in the lower left corner of the picture). Before we can even climb in for our rescue, we've got take the first step up the ladder. And, we've got to start noticing the little things that most people overlook. We've got to see the "Made in the USA" labels.
The spoons I picked up were Parade brand plastic spoons made in the USA! Even the small local stores carry brands made in America. Keep your eyes open, take the first step onto the long haul of rescuing a country in distress and we can rescue this nation.
God bless you, goodnight!
