All gave some. Some gave all.
I salute all my brother servicemen/women in all branches of the Armed Forces. Thank you for your service and may Almighty YHWH bless each and every one of you and your families.
Lee Greenwood- God Bless the U.S.A. with lyrics
If tomorrow all the things were gone I worked for all my life And I had to start again With just my children and my wife I thank my lucky stars To be living here today 'Cause the flag still stands for freedom And they can't take that away And I'm proud to be an American Where at least I know I'm free And I won't forget the men who died Who gave that right to me And I'd gladly stand up next to you And defend Her still today 'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land God Bless the U.S.A. From the lakes of Minnesota To the hills of Tennessee Across the plains of Texas From sea to shining sea From Detroit down to Houston And New York to L.A. Where's pride in every American heart And it's time we stand and say That I'm proud to be an American Where at least I know I'm free And I won't forget the men who died Who gave that right to me And I'd gladly stand up next to you And defend Her still today 'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land God Bless the U.S.A. And I'm proud to be an American Where at least I know I'm free And I won't forget the men who died Who gave that right to me And I'd gladly stand up next to you And defend Her still today 'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land God Bless the U.S.A.

Veterans Day / Memorial Day Tribute
A 15-minute video tribute I produced for a local Veterans Day program, featuring still images and video clips intricately timed to music. It's kind of long because it was originally sectioned as a multi-part presentation, but I thought I would piece it together and publish it in its entirety.
"Honor" by Hans Zimmer, Blake Neely, Geoff Zanelli
"I'm Already There" by Lonestar
"Main Titles From The American President" by Marc Shaiman
"Honor (For Oboe And Strings)" by Hans Zimmer, Blake Neely, Geoff Zanelli
"Hymn To the Fallen" by John Williams
VETERANS DAY GRATITUDE
This heart-stirring Veterans Day video features part of a powerful speech given by President Ronald Reagan at Omaha Beach, commemorating the 40th anniversary of D-Day (June 6, 1984). President Reagan tells the heart-stirring story of Private First Class Peter Robert Zanatta, of the 37th Engineer Combat Battalion, and first assault wave to hit Omaha Beach on D-Day. Through the words of his loving daughter, a D-Day veteran shows us the true meaning of Veterans Day. Recognize the sacrifice given by veterans and their families by setting aside a special time to honor their courage and service.
Star Spangled Banner As You've Never Heard It
A story of how our national anthem came to be.
I was asked by someone to put a video together for this audio and upload it, so here it is. I was never expecting it to get so many views.
Here's a link to one of many sources for info on the true story:
Hope you enjoy the message of this video though. God Bless America.
P.S: Really sorry about the typos in the anthem.
*I don't own the audio or pics and the flag video that I used towards the end belongs to FarWestTexas.
Hallelujah Veterans Version
I rewrote hallelujah for our Veterans. Every picture in this video was sent to me by the great members of our Armed Forces who have been supporting me from the beginning.
Thank you so much for your service and your support.
Veterans Day We Took An Oath
We salute our brothers and sister who have made this great country possible. Do not forget your OATH! It does not expire!
American Story with Bob Dotson-LostDogTags
America survives and thrives because of all those names we don’t know, seemingly ordinary people who do extraordinary things. They don’t run for president or go on talk shows, but without them, the best of America would not exist.
Bob Dotson was born in St. Louis, Missouri, the son of Dottie Bailey, a singer who performed on NBC radio and Bill Dotson, a janitor who dropped out of school in fifth grade, but attended night classes for 23 years and later earned an honorary masters degree in Opthalmics for his study of the eye.
Their youngest son Bob began a remarkable Odyssey of his own, after graduating from Kansas University in 1968. Bob Dotson crisscrossed this country, more than four million miles, searching for people who are practically invisible, the ones who change our lives, but don’t take time to tweet and tell us about it.
His quest got noticed. Dotson won Oklahoma’s first National Emmy for a 90-minute documentary on African American history called “Through the Looking Glass Darkly.” He was nominated for 11 national Emmys — and won seven more — after he became an NBC News correspondent in 1975. His long-running series, “The American Story with Bob Dotson,” was a regular feature on the TODAY Show for 40 years. He is now a New York Times Best Selling author and writes a daily blog which The Society of Professional Journalists cited as the “best in new media.”
Dotson continues producing documentaries. An NBC production, “El Capitan’s Courageous Climbers,” won seven International Film Festivals and documentary's highest honor, the CINE Grand Prize. He is one of the most honored storytellers of our time. His reporting and storytelling have earned 120 awards around the world. They include top honors from the Kennedy Center, DuPont Columbia and a record six Edward R. Murrow Awards for Best Network News Writing. In 2014, Dotson received the William Allen White Foundation National Citation for journalistic excellence. In 2019 he joined Will Rogers in the Oklahoma Journalism Hall of Fame.
Dotson now teaches the next generation of visual storytellers, conducting workshops in Korea, Australia, England, Holland, Switzerland, and Austria. He is also a professor of Master Storytelling at Syracuse University.
Bob is the author of four books, including the New York Times best-selling “American Story: A Lifetime Search for Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things.” (Penguin/Random House)
The latest edition of his classic, “Make It Memorable: Writing and Packaging Visual News with Style” became Amazon’s best-selling journalism book. It is being studied on 26 campuses and in newsrooms around the world. (Roman & Littlefield.)
