 "But we have forgotten God.  We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserves us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us, and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own.  Intoxicated with unbroken success we have become too self sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace too proud to pray to the God that made us".
Abraham Lincoln Proclamation - A National Day of Fasting, Humiliation and Prayer, March 30, 1863  
All American Post 7916 and the Town of Occoquan proudly announce the second annual Military Tribute Banner Program is SOLD OUT.   For everything you need to know to have a a banner to honor the veteran you love hung along Mill Street after Memorial Day 2020 under "current programs" scroll down to Occoquan after you open:   www.militarytributebanners.org
 

GOD BLESS AMERICA 

'Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need.  Amen.'

 
It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.
It is the soldier, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the soldier, who salutes the flag, who serves under the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag.
