You are invited to attend or watch the 2016 National Memorial Day Parade this coming Monday, May 30, 2016 at 2:00 PM EDT along Constitution Avenue in Washington, DC..

Memorial Day is the day that America has set aside to honor those men and women who have lost their lives serving in the armed forces of our country.”

The National Memorial Day Parade honors those men and women this year as well as commemorates the 15th Anniversary of the attacks on the U.S. Homeland on Sept. 11, 2001, the 25th Anniversary of the Gulf War, and the 75th Anniversary of the America’s entry into World War II.

While proceeding along Constitution Avenue from 7th to 17th St., NW, the parade will feature a large number of marching bands (military, high school, and college) and veterans organizations. In addition, over 1000 active duty military personnel are also expected to be in the parade.

There will also be a number of celebrities including actors Gary Sinise and Joe Mantegna, astronaut and Korean War veteran Buzz Aldrin, and Betty Cantrell, the 2016 Miss America. Music will be performed by Phil Vassar, Trent Harmon, and John Michael Montgomery.

American Veterans Center revived the parade 12 years ago after it had been dormant for almost 70 years and has sponsored the it ever since. AVC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation dedicated “to preserve the legacy of our veterans and military personnel for more than 20 years.”

If you can’t attend the 2016 National Memorial Day Parade, then nearby citizenry can watch the festivities as they are being televised locally in Washington on News Channel 8. Others across America will be able to watch the parade as it will be streamed live nationally on REELZ, and Military.com. Active duty military personnel will have the opportunity to see the parade and its associated activities because it will be broadcast around the world on the American Forces Network. You can also watch it here.

So please add this wonderful event to your Memorial Day agenda. Come on down and attend the parade or take your time to watch it while it’s streamed live on your computer or perhaps even your local establishment.

WOW: Homeless Veteran Gives Stranded Woman His Last $20, What She Does Next For Him Will Bring You Tears Of Joy

Published

on

The holidays tend to make us somewhat introspective about how great most of our lives are. It also makes most of us want to reach out to help those that aren’t as fortunate as we are. If you’re one of the people being helped by a good-hearted friend or neighbor this Thanksgiving, you’re probably especially thankful for the holiday spirit.

Usually those of firmly planted in the middle class take this opportunity to help at a homeless mission or hand out money to people we see on the street. However, one New Jersey native found herself the recipient of kindness from a homeless man who came to her aid just a few days ago. According to Daily Mail, Kate McClure found herself broken down on a dark and lonely road when her angel of mercy came out of the darkness to save her with his last few dollars.

McClure wasn’t sure what she would do until the hhomelessJohnny Bobbitt Jr. selflessly gave her $20 to get home. She was so touched by his kindness that she started a campaign to raise money for her newfound friend who was down on his luck.

“Kate McClure, 27, started the GoFundMe campaign 12 days ago after she ran into trouble on Interstate 95 and Johnny Bobbitt Jr., came to her rescue with his last $20.

Speaking to the Philadelphia Inquirer, McClure said that she didn’t know what to do when she pulled over on the deserted highway just before midnight. ‘My heart was beating out of my chest.’

She phoned her boyfriend, Mark D’Amico, 38, and asked him to come and get her. It was then that Bobbitt Jr. emerged from the darkness and approached her car.

McClure, who works for the New Jersey Department of Transportation said she didn’t have any money to repay him that night.

Because of his kind and caring nature, the couple decided that they had to do something for him, to try and make a perminate change in his life. He truly seemed to be interested in working his way back up to functioning as a productive member of society, he just seemed to have fallen on hard times. Especially after finding out that he was a homeless veteran, they knew that they had to do something for him.

“‘He is very interested in finding a job, and I believe that with a place to be able to clean up every night and get a good night’s rest, his life can get back to being normal.

‘Truly believe that all Johnny needs is one little break. Hopefully, with your help, I can be the one to give it to him.

‘He just needs a push in the right direction. I can’t imagine how hard it is. He’s from the Carolinas. He’s a thousand miles from home with nothing, nobody. Things probably snowballed to where he’s living under a bridge.’

Bobbitt told the couple that he wants to live in Robbinsville, New Jersey and work at the Amazon warehouse.

‘He definitely has the drive,’ D’Amico said. 

‘He doesn’t want to be on the streets anymore. He wants to be a functioning member of society and not be sitting on a guardrail in Philadelphia.

‘He knows where he’s at and he knows what he has to do to dig himself out,’ D’Amico said. 

‘It’s almost impossible to dig himself out if he has nobody and nothing. If we can raise enough money to set him up for a few months, where he doesn’t have to worry about where he’s going to sleep and what he’s going to eat, then he can get a job and go about his life.’ 

The cash will go toward renting an apartment for Bobbitt and paying for necessities like food, clothing, cellphone, and transportation.

He will also receive a small amount of cash for walking-around money.

Budweiser’s New NFL Ad Leaves Every Military Fam In America In Complete SHOCK With What It Shows

Published

on

As one of the NFL’s biggest sponsors, Budweiser let it be known this week that they aren’t backing down to many Americans’ demands that they pull their support from the sport that allows protests to continue. Now, they have come out with a new commercial that is leaving every Military family in the country in complete shock.

The beer company offered a public statement that didn’t condone the National Anthem kneelers but also didn’t discredit them. They spoke of support for our military members who have and are defending our freedom but left a lot to be desired in making a real statement through assertive action.

Yahoo Finance compiled the responses of sponsors to the protest, most of which carried the disappointing theme that they considered the actions of players to be freedom of speech. The official report from Anheuser-Busch reads:

“On Monday night, a spokesperson for Anheuser-Busch InBev sent Yahoo Finance this statement, which appears to fall into the play-it-safe, neutral category along with Under Armour and Ford:

“At Anheuser-Busch, we have a long heritage of supporting the institutions and values that have made America so strong.  That includes our armed forces and the national anthem as well as diversity, equality, and freedom of speech.  We proudly employ over 1,100 military veterans and we work every day to create an inclusive environment for all of our employees. Because only together can we achieve our dream of bringing people together for a better world.”

While their politically correct statement seems to be playing it really safe on the issue, their commercial sends a very clear message that not everyone is going to appreciate. Perhaps Anheuser-Busch realized the fine line they were walking with who their customers are. True Americans who bleed red, white, and blue and are boycotting the NFL are the ones who drink their beer, not those who support these anti-patriotic protests.

The company’s recent commercial represents this, bringing the attention back to where it belongs — on the sacrifice of those who fight to defend our flag that entitled sports stars are kneeling before.

When you reach into the cooler this weekend and pop open a cold one while spending time with those you love, Budweiser hopes you think of them and drink one of their beers while not watching football. With that plan in mind, they created a special commercial to commemorate our nation’s independence and many Americans were floored at what they saw.

It’s been a year of beer debacles a major brewing company like Heineken going down the misguided path behind liberal coffee giant Starbucks in mixing politics with their products. Budweiser also decided to mix the two but in a much different way that left their customer base in awe and ensured that they are the staple beverage for beer drinkers at cookouts across the country.

Right Wing News reports:

If this doesn’t make you bleed red, white, and blue for the rest of the year, I don’t  know what will. I mean, what’s more American than beer, Marines, Star Wars and helping veterans?

Star Wars star Adam Driver (better known as Kylo Ren) is a Marine veteran who has achieved his dream of becoming an actor. Now, he wants to give back, with the help of Budweiser’s “Folds Of Honor” program.

Budweiser created a docu-movie of sort in their moving ad that really tugs at the heartstrings of every country-loving patriot in the country. Driver is seen traveling across the country to meet up the real daughter of an actual wounded Army vet, John Williams, who had been severely injured during a training exercise. The hero’s daughter, Hayley Grace Williams, is currently studying to become a nurse and had written into the “Folds of Honor” program in hopes of getting a scholarship to help facilitate her dreams.

“Because of his injury, Williams was not able to go overseas and was medically discharged,” Right Wing News explains. “His daughter has been forced to work 40 hours a week to pay for her final year of school, which is going to cost $44,000. In her letter, Hayley explains that the weight she carries is so great that she may not be able to finish her final year of schooling.”

While Heineken preaches to red-blooded Americans about “open borders” on their bottles, Budweiser took the patriotic approach rather than using divisive political rhetoric to sell beer. The sales should speak for themselves in that Heineken lost a huge portion of their customer base and Budweiser reinstated they’re truly the “king of beers.”

Here is what the Heineken bottle reads:

Here’s To An Open World

To a world without borders or barriers. To the belief that there is more that unites us than divides us. To find common ground to raise a bottle with the person next to you. Because a stranger is just a friend that you haven’t had a cold Heineken with yet.

Open Your World.

While Heineken thinks that what unites people is open borders, Budweiser understands that true red, white, and blue patriotism is what America really needs right now. That means doing more for those who fought and sacrificed for this country, than those who cross the border illegally. There are homeless, hurting veterans that need our attention and help before refugees and illegal immigrants. If liberals really cared about coming together and unifying people, their concern would be for those who defended their right to complain about “open borders.”

While we don’t get paid to promote any beer brand at Freedom Daily, you can bet that we’ll be buying a brew with real American values and not one with an agenda to push, like Heineken. We hope that everyone has a happy and safe Independence Day, drinks responsibly, and supports a brand that backs America and our heroes who fought for this country.

Obama Suffers Complete Meltdown Over What Veterans Just Gave Trump On Live TV

Published

on

For the past 8 years, Obama made it no secret how much he hated our military. He hollowed out our military capabilities to pre-world war II capabilities, while making it virtually impossible for our soldiers to protect themselves on the battlefield with the outrageous changes he made to our military’s Rules of Engagement (ROE), resulting in the deaths of dozens of our warriors. To add insult to injury, Obama constantly treated our service members like crap, refusing to do simple things like return salutes to Marines assigned to his detail, where he reduced our Marines to his personal umbrella-holding servant boys. Obama also would go back on his campaign promise to “fix the VA,” where hundreds of our veterans would go on to die waiting for medical treatment from their war injuries.

With Trump in office, things have taken a drastic and wonderful turn for the better. President Trump’s love and appreciation for our military is constantly on full display with the genuinely nice way he treats any service member he comes into contact with. Whether it’s chasing down a Marine’s hat that’s blown off, taking time from his busy schedule to visit our wounded warriors, going to a fallen soldier’s funeral, or firing 800 corrupt VA officials who worked during the Obama Administration, Trump’s sincere care and compassion for Americans truly knows no bounds.

So not surprisingly, when President Trump had the opportunity to honor our veterans over Veteran’s Day, despite his busy 11-day Asia tour, he would drop everything to honor our Vietnam veterans with an incredible ceremony and a heartfelt speech. Trump took the stage to honor all of America’s veterans, where he was flanked by 7 elderly Vietnam Veterans. But one of the veterans did something completely unexpected after Trump’s remarks, that will probably have Hussein Obama completely furious.  

Standing with Vietnam veterans behind him, Trump said:

“Our veterans are a national treasure, and I thank them all for their service, sacrifice, and patriotism.”

“To each of you with me today, you are the heroes who fulfill your duty to our nation. And each of you, under the most difficult conditions, did what you had to do, and you did it well.”

Unlike Obama who made every event on planet earth about him, President Trump then turned the microphone over to the seven Vietnam heroes behind them, giving them the opportunity to say whatever was on their minds. The third veteran to speak, who was wearing a Navy SEAL veteran hat, could only get a few words out before choking up and turning to Trump saying:

“Mr. President, from my heart, thank you for your support of the military, and it’s an honor to be here as one of seven Vietnam veterans representing the 58,000 heroes that never made it home. Thank you so much,” the veteran said.

Immediately overcome with his appreciation and emotion for a Commander-in-Chief who genuinely cares, unlike our previous president, the veteran then hugged Trump and began weeping. The touching moment begins around 3:55:

Watch:

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’ve never seen any World War II or Vietnam Veteran ever hug Obama for anything he did for them. Obama had no issue stabbing our elderly veterans in the back, as we all remember the heartbreaking images of wheelchair-bound elderly veterans being turned away from visiting their World War II memorial after Obama decided to shut it down back in 2013 as part of his political ploy to make Republicans pay. Even the Park Police thought it was incredibly horrible what Obama did, and refused to follow Obama’s orders and not let the veterans into the memorial.

Here’s a recap of the disgusting way Obama treated our WWII veterans, via Stars and Stripes:

Wheelchair-bound elderly veterans pushed aside barricades to tour the World War II Memorial Tuesday morning, in defiance of the government shutdown which closed all of the memorials in the nation’s capital.

The four bus loads of veterans — visiting from Mississippi as part of a once-in-a-lifetime Honor Flight tour — ignored National Park Police instructions not to enter the site as lawmakers and tourists cheered them on.

“We didn’t come this far not to get in,” one veteran proclaimed.

The scene was both emotional and comical at once. After it was clear they had lost control of the situation, Park Police officials stood aside, telling press that they had “asked for guidance on how to respond” to the breach of security.

 As 80-something veterans slowly walked around the massive war memorial, Park Police stood quietly to the side, advising other tourists that the site was technically still closed. But they made no moves to stop the wishes of the war heroes.

The memorial was closed because of the government shutdown that started 11 hours earlier, after lawmakers failed to pass a temporary budget plan to keep nonessential federal programs operating. Republicans and Democrats have been stalled in budget fight for weeks, mostly over legislative add-ons dealing with the new healthcare law.

It’s wonderful to see our veterans finally being treated well by a Commander-in-Chief who doesn’t exist for the sake of furthering the Islamic agenda. You know Obama’s got to be pretty mad right now after seeing how much our veterans LOVE President Trump!
