WHY I LOVE AMERICA

I love our nation because I was born here (south Georgia), I served my country for 21 plus years (16 active duty Army and 5 Reserve), and we have freedom of worship...Besides all that, my ancestors came to America in the early 1600s, and my family tree includes American Indian blood, English, Irish, French, Welsh and more..America is a melting pot, of the people, for the people and supposed to be governed by the people.

Over in Midway, Georgia (near Savannah), stands a little white church, and across the road is a cemetery. Underneath the grounds of this cemetery lies my great-great-great-great grandfather, and grandmother. Growing in the cemetery are huge, moss covered live oak trees (one has a 25 feet + diameter and is hundreds of years old). On my grandmother's grave lies the inscription.."A humble woman of God"..They were Puritans...so I have a spiritual heritage.

I once toook my young son (he was seeking direction) down to the family cemetery where my Dad, Mom, both sets of grandparents, one set of great grandparents, many aunts, uncles and cousins are resting. I told him..."See, some died young, some died old...Let me tell you something about our family...First of all, we love God, next, we love our family, and third, we love our country..if you stick with these three things in life, you will never go wrong."

Yes, I am proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free and can worship my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Irvin L. Rozier, Captain (Ret), US Army...Chaplain of American Legion (For God and Country) Post 181

Irvin, Thank you for serving this great country! Loved the article, especially in the aftermath of the south's devastation. We don't always have the physical to appreciate for history--but the stories can be never ending when we're willing to share.
