Duty, Honor and Country... three words that no longer hold the same meaning as they once did. Such words depend upon more than their meaning alone, they require a certain degree of moral clarity and character that is very rare today.  Society has not only been dumbed down they have been deluded and misdirected.

Duty, honor and country don't hold the same place in the heart and soul in many of our youth...  They have been emptied, twisted, spun and redefined, until this generation no longer views them as their forefather's once did. Many in America no longer take pride in the works of their ancestors, nor respect the sacrifices of their elders... Liberty's torch doesn't burn as brightly in their hearts as it did in their father's. 

POLL: Is the internet destroying the power of the Mainstream Media?

Duty, honor and country have been cloaked in the fog of the New World Order... draped in the tapestry of cultural Marxism, until the soul of our youth have become confused and distorted as to their duty, and what honor and country mean. Many of our children no longer revere the flag, they question our national motives and history; they view America thru the prism of a New World Order. 

Duty, Honor, Country are in danger of vanishing... from the living rooms of America and the Halls of our public institutions. They are a dying sentiment, reserved for a few good men. A band of brothers few; whose, flame burns dimly, in the twilight of their nations greatness.  The question remains who will rekindle the fire to serve: Duty, honor, country.

Just remember which ex presidents wanted a New World Order

Well,

     We know that George H. W. Bush stated that  "we welcome the New World Order" as he signed UNITED NATIONS AGENDA 21 and accepted it as official policy for the United States to adopt.  We know that AGENDA 21 is a MARXIST/COMMUNIST agenda, written by countries that hate America. Its prime goal is to move into the states, counties and local governments of this country, almost covertly, and heavily restrict and eventually eliminate private property rights.  It has infected states, counties and local governments all across this country, including my own in Platte County/Platte City Missouri.  It appears that Bill Clinton and George W. Bush accepted and supported this MARXIST PROGRAM.  Barack Obama has made AGENDA 21 a key part of his own plans for "transforming the United States of America".  The people must become aware of what is happening with AGENDA 21 and strongly oppose it.  Sadly, almost none of the Americaqn People have even heard of this dangerous program, let alone understand it.

There is a group of people that gives no allegiance to any country.  They think they are above all that and they have decreed that America shall fall.  They are the ones that are behind the presidents and the commie agenda they are pushing.

Grand words that few respect and live by anymore.

Dwight, I would argue that without them no morally upright institution can hope to prevail. So whether bartered, bought, or borrowed, we need it now.

Dwight, I think you will find there are more than the government realizes but they are going to find out soon enough.

and we mostly lost this in the past 5 years, with Obama and his Marxist policies, favoring the enemies of this country, and allowing the main structures of our liberty to be pushed aside and replaced with social engineering, divisions of race and economics, and corruptions, lies and coverups. using the epa, irs...and other agencies to control the government, harass the people and to subvert those who are against the goverments policies.....in any other time...when Benghazi was under attack...there would never have been a question as to weather it was a protest...it would have been automatically assumed that it was a terrorist attack...and military help would have been on the way...then for the whitehouse and other agencies to coverup up the entire matter with lies to help save the presidents policies...is just beyond belief..especially when 4 americans were slaughtered....until this president is booted out of his office, and his policies are eliminated......we will never be the same.

I believe we have lost it over a far longer period than just the Obama administration.

I fear it was our failure as parents, adults, teachers, etc., since before the Vietnam War, that led to the loss of Duty, Honor, Country, and the resultant loss of patriotism we saw demonstrated during that war.  

I believe we got so wrapped up in chasing the American Dream, pursuing job and/or career, raising families, and enjoying the leisure time and activities, that came with the prosperity of the era, that we allowed the schools to educate our children (without us doing our share); the politicians to run the country (without us doing our share); and the churches to watch out for our morals and spirituality (without us doing our share). As a result, the Progressives took those thing away - right out from under our noses.  They kept their eye on the goal, while we lived and played, and did nothng to stop them.  

Now we find ourselves fighting our way out of a very deep hole - with no one to blame but ourselves.  And - an epic fight it will be!  

As long as the opiate of affluence was in reach of the middle class, the apathy went unchallenged. But that is gone for now. Change must occur with the hangover (and not Baracks kind).

Sad to say, but you're right in your assessment.

I beg to differ with you! During Vietnam, our troops STILL had "Duty, Honor, Country" instilled in their beliefs! That is why so many accepted the draft, though they may have disagreed with it, instead of becoming a traitor by fleeing to Canada! And there were MANY that volunteered for enlistment to go to 'Nam! Do not belittle the 'Nam Veterans with such a statement! Yes! Many questioned the politics of the war while serving, even under fire, but they NEVER gave up their "Duty, Honor, Country" belief! To say otherwise is an insult to each and every Veteran that served during that era!   USN (RET)

Gregory... Duty, Honor, County was speaking to this new generation... not the Viet Nam generation... although many of the signs of this plague were certainly present in that generation... Jane Fonda, Bill Ayers and a burgeoning Hippie movement.  Even today there is a remnant of the true seed... Duty, Honor, Country, has not totally died out, yet...  They remain  ...a dying sentiment reserved for a few good men.

I trust you are one... among the few.

ALERT ALERT

YUP: President Trump Signs Great And Beautiful Trump Border Wall During Tour In San Diego

Embedded video

President Donald Trump visited the San Diego border on Wednesday to show off a newly constructed portion of the wall after a fundraising trip in California.

“It’s an amazing project,” Trump said, pointing to the 30-foot high barrier constructed with steel and concrete, noting that it also went six feet underground.

“If you think you’re going to cut it with a blow torch, that doesn’t work, because you hit the concrete, and then if you think you’re going to go through the concrete, that doesn’t work because we have very powerful rebar inside,” Trump said.

The president traveled via motorcade after a fundraiser to Otay Mesa, a community outside San Diego on the United States -Mexico border to review the latest constructed physical barrier.

He pointed out the new wall structure to the press, which was 24 miles of primary and secondary wall at the border.

“We have it covered underground, we have it covered overground,” Trump said.

The president was joined by acting Department of Homeland security Kevin McAllen and several other border security officials.

He said that over 44,000 bollard panels had been set up for the wall, which was then filled with concrete and rebar.

Trump admitted that he envisioned a solid concrete wall when he campaigned for president, but he was told by border officials that they preferred a wall constructed by concrete-filled bollards so they could see through it.

“It’s hardened concrete, very powerful concrete,” Trump said, pointing to the structure.

He added that the steel wall was designed to retain heat, making it harder to climb, plus having an anti-climbing system at the top.

“You can fry an egg on that wall,” he said. The president also acknowledged to reporters that he wanted the wall to be painted black and have spikes but said it was cheaper to let it remain naturally rust-colored.

“We can paint it later,” he said.

The president discussed his growing understanding of border barriers, noting that the Southern border would not need much more than 500 miles of wall to secure the border. He cited the existence of natural mountain and river barriers that prevented criminals from crossing. He did not rule out building additional barriers in the future but said it would depend on whether it was needed.

One border patrol agent spoke about the importance of the border wall to all of the agents, thanking the president for pushing forward on construction.

Trump said he met with Border Patrol prior to constructing the wall, picking the most effective structures to protect the border.

One border security official scoffed at the idea that the wall was a “vanity” project for the president.

“There’s a false narrative out there that this wall is the president’s vanity wall,” he said. “I’m here to tell you right now that that is false.”

He thanked Trump for listening to border patrol agents during the planning and construction process.

“You listened to the agents and you gave them exactly what they asked for,” he said.

One official with Trump confirmed that the structure was funded with regular Congressional appropriations in the FY 2017 and FY 2018 and that that the new wall replaced an inferior structure.

Trump said that he still considered the situation on the border a national emergency, but as more wall went up he could withdraw military forces.

“I hope you’re impressed,” he told reporters as he took questions about the project.

One worker told Trump of a tradition of workers signing the wall if they worked on the wall.

“I’ll sign it,” Trump said, and went to the wall and signed the steel barrier with a marker before encouraging other officials present to do the same.
