"Vince's Corner"

NEVER SAID BETTER.

Time is like a river You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again.

Franklin Graham was speaking at the First Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida in January, 2015, when he said America will not come back. He wrote:
     
The American dream ended on November 6th, 2012 in Ohio.  The second term of Barack Obama has been the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of the white Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled and developed the greatest republic in the history of mankind.  A coalition of blacks, Latinos, feminists, gays, government workers, union members, environmental extremists, the media, Hollywood, uninformed young people, the "forever needy," the chronically unemployed, illegal aliens and other "fellow  travelers" have ended Norman Rockwell's America.

You will never again out-vote these people. It will take individual acts of defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we have allowed them to take away.  It will take zealots, not moderates and shy, not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and restore our  beloved country to its former status.  People like me are completely politically irrelevant, and I will probably never again be able to legally comment on or concern myself with the aforementioned coalition which has surrendered our culture, our heritage and our traditions without a shot being fired.

The cocker spaniel is off the front porch, the pit bull is in the back yard The American Constitution has been replaced with Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" and the likes of Chicago shyster David Axelrod along with international socialist George Soros have been pulling the strings on their beige puppet have brought us Act 2 of the New World Order. The curtain will come down but the damage has been done, the story has been told.

Those who come after us will once again have to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this generation has timidly frittered away due to white guilt and political correctness.
       
Got the guts to pass it on?

You bet I do and just did!

 

 

 

 

The 1st Marine Division Association

1st Marine Division Emblem

Welcome to the 1st Marine Division Association (FMDA) web site. This site details current and future events for the 1st Marine Division Association..

Throughout this site you can see a copy of our newsletter, Old Breed. You can see photos of the members and the camaraderie they enjoy, while meeting and talking with Marines who served in different times and places. The 1st Marine Division Association can be a valuable resource whether you are transitioning to civilian life or planning on enjoying your retirement. You can be part of an organization of veterans who understand that Duty, Honor and Commitment are not merely words.

So take your time and browse our web site and remember you can be part of the FMDA as a reward for service already committed to your country. Joining the 1st Marine Division Association may not get you a job, a car, or even a pat on back for your service but you will get to hang with Marines who understand. The Association is made of members from all walks of life.  You could meet others you have served with or you will meet veterans you would have liked to serve with. I have had the pleasure of meeting and talking with some of the greatest people on earth, men and women who served with or in support of the 1st Marine Division. Join the 1st Marine Division Association and we can share our experiences together.

 

 

The Marine Corps is a "Band of Brothers" and the First Marine Division Association (FMDA) represents the best of what our Corps stands for. This Association cuts across:

*Age Differences
*Rank Differences
*Race
*Socio/Economic Differences

The FMDA is an Association where Marines and Sailors who now serve, or who have served, come together as a “Family of Warriors” and share that unexplained Quality that makes us stand apart, known as “Esprit de Corps”

Our annual reunions and anniversary celebrations provide a venue for all generations of Warriors to gather and enjoy the Family of Arms that our beloved Division represents. We honor our past heroes and salute the current generation that is writing history in Iraq and Afghanistan today and on unknown shores tomorrow.

 

Our Magazine, The Old Breed News, provides current information on our Corps as well as maintaining the memory of our past glory.

Our Outreach Program pledges that we, the “Older Brothers” of our family stand ready to mentor our younger brothers and sisters and assist their children with our Scholarship Program and a helping hand from our local chapters. We stand ready to help them relocate after their active service, find employment and receive benefits of service that have been promised.
