I am a lifetime member with the 173rd Airborne Sky Soldiers Association! I want to open up a Chapter here in Las Vegas, NV. I would need ten (10) members to start a Chapter here. I just attended the 173rd Airborne Sky Soldiers Convention in San Antonio, TX. I am proud to announce that the 2013 Convention will be held here in Las Vegas, NV. If you would like to join the Chapter, please contact me on our VFW Post email at vfwpost1753@gmail.com and please leave a contact number or I could just respond to your email.

THANK YOU, AIRBORNE ALL THE WAY!!

Freedom Poem
I WATCHED THE FLAG PASS BY ONE DAY,
IT FLUTTERED IN THE BREEZE.
A YOUNG MARINE SALUTED IT,
AND THEN HE STOOD AT EASE.
 
I LOOKED AT HIM IN UNIFORM
SO YOUNG, SO TALL, SO PROUD,
WITH HAIR CUT SQUARE AND EYES ALERT.
HE'D STAND OUT IN ANY CROWD.
 
I THOUGHT HOW MANY MEN LIKE HIM
HAD FALLEN THROUGH THE YEARS.
HOW MANY DIED ON FOREIGN SOIL?
 
HOW MANY MOTHERS' TEARS?
HOW MANY PILOTS' PLANES SHOT DOWN?
HOW MANY DIED AT SEA?
HOW MANY FOXHOLES WERE SOLDIERS GRAVES?
NO, FREEDOM ISN'T FREE.
 
I HEARD THE SOUND OF TAPS ONE NIGHT,
WHEN EVERYTHING WAS STILL.
I LISTENED TO THE BUGLER PLAY
AND FELT A SUDDEN CHILL.
 
I WONDERED HOW MANY TIMES
THAT TAPS HAD MEANT "AMEN"
WHEN A FLAG HAD DRAPED A COFFIN
OF A BROTHER OR A FRIEND
 
I THOUGHT OF ALL THE CHILDREN,
OF THE MOTHERS AND THE WIVES,
OF FATHERS, SONS AND HUSBANDS
WITH INTERRUPTED LIVES.
 
I THOUGHT ABOUT A GRAVEYARD
AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA.
OF UNMARKED GRAVES IN ARLINGTON.
NO, FREEDOM ISN'T FREE.

As of January 1, 2011 this is how many hits we've received!
