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.
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
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.
