    The problem with America having a military parade is that it would take forever, given the number of 2nd Amendment Military with their private collections of assault rifles.

    My late father was there. He had a small b&w photo of Musso and his lover hanging upside down, but it's gotten lost over the decades since I moved from SA. Probably worth a bit to the War Historians.

    ....a fine speech by President Trump

    In June of 1775, the Continental Congress created a unified Army out of the Revolutionary Forces encamped around Boston and New York, and named after the great George Washington
    Our Army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over the airports, it did everything it had to do,
