Independence Day

I can't think of a better way to post about the Fourth of July than to bring attention to today's dedication of a statue of a real American hero... Petty Officer 2nd Class, Navy Seal, Seal Delivery Team Two Danny Phillip Dietz Jr.

The Danny Dietz Memorial

There were Littleton, Colorado residents who resisted the movement to place the statue in Berry Park, but fortunately their side didn't succeed in stopping it.

I think this is a good thing to celebrate on this July 4th.

It goes to show you that people are just LOOKING for something to protest.

I hope you had a fantastic Fourth, Cube!

The level of vitriol against our soldiers by the left is astounding to me.

Would they like the statue to be holding a bouquet of flowers rather than a rifle? Honestly...

I'm glad the statue stayed. Hopefully, some asshat leftard will not take it upon himself to vandalize it out of 'protest.'

I saw a report on this. What a brave and very tough young man!! I was so sad and so proud at the same time to learn of his story. It's hard to believe there are those who fought the putting up of this statue.

I hope the statue allows many families to see it as honoring not only this one man, but representing others who have lost their lives. I think it is a wonderful thing.

I know this is a bit late, but...

as a former resident of Littleton Colorado I wish now I were there.

GOD BLESS AMERICA, and may God Bless our military personnel!
