PAYING TRIBUTE TO AMERICA, HER MILITARY... AND A PILOT

There is a city Obama can scratch off his "apology tour" list, and that would be Pilsen in the Czech Republic. Why? Because they've made it their business over the years to THANK America, the American soldier, and General George S. Patton, Jr. And in all this paying of tribute to America, they've singled out one as their American hero: Lt. Virgil P. Kirkham, a pilot.


More importantly, they're teaching their children to do the same.


I don't know how I missed this story but I did. Here's your chance to read about a city that continues to pay tribute to our great nation.



THE GENERAL GEORGE PATTON SCHOLARSHIP OF HONOR





Hat Tip to Vic in Arizona for passing this on, and MaryLou down on the Space Coast for prompting me to look for more info on it. Of course, when I first read this story, I thought of MaryLou, Dan, her mother Jane... and Herby, a pilot.
