    How about a veterans OC picnic where we invite veterans to come and eat lunch and do a little ceremony in their honor and say thanks for their service.

    Our regular OCers that are veterans could wear shirts or hats representing their branch as well as any other veterans that want to join us and learn about OC, etc...

    I propose this as an idea for a future event and welcome all ideas. I don't have a date, place etc. in mind so post your thoughts here.

    I would support this! I think it would be a great idea!
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

    Most excellent idea! We should always honor and thank our vets, and our military for the job well done.

    For our FREEDOM!!!! So we can enjoy our rights. Like open carrying our pistols, whenever we want and where ever we want...:celebrate :celebrate :celebrate :celebrate :celebrate :celebrate :celebrate :celebrate

    Good Morning!

    insignia240 & anetsprungen I know this isn't the place for this but I

    do believe that there should be more people expressing how proud

    and thankful they are for your service in the military. For our FREEDOM!

    I am personally going THANK-YOU!!!!

    I oc once in a while. But will not today. But you see that is the

    FREEDOM and RIGHT to do it whenever I please.


    So to all our VETS and those who are serving now, stand PROUD. walk

    with your heads up. And GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!! :celebrate :celebrate

    Good idea. Have it on Memorial Day or Veterans Day, could even participate as part of a parade and have the picnic later.
    Rights are like muscles. You must EXERCISE THEM to keep them from becoming atrophied.

    Too bad we didn't think of this a little earlier, Armed Forces day was May 15.

    Memorial Day would be good but is an awful popular holiday, don't know how many people would show up.

    Veteran's Day is Nov. 11... be kinda chilly then, but could make it a hot chili picnic.

    Father's Day- June 20..Sun

    July 4th..?

    Sept. 11th..Patriots Day....not!

    Oct. 24th... United Nations Day

    Just a few suggestions.... IMO

    Memorial day is a wonderful time. We can honor all Vets, all Military, past and present. And also honor the fallen.

    But that is just about upon us...to get anything that would be anything good we would need some time. Finding a place, getting invites out, and making it a passing dish picnic. Bring your own drinks (no alcohol)

    I am willing to help if you want me to..Steve will help also. It is just I don't know where there is a good place.

    I can not help on the 4th of July and it is not a good time anyway. To many people have their own things going on and a lot are gone on vacation.

    And yes Nov is a little cold. So maybe a holiday is not a good time...but Memorial would have been a good time.

    Let me know what you come up with...or what you think?

    Me again....

    Steve and I just had another idea.

    We believe that we don't need a holiday to honor them. We should be honoring them everyday. They fight and protect our country every day.

    And Sunday is not a good day because that is a family day. People go to church, they go out to eat, and then enjoy their company and rest up for the next day when the most of them work.

    Sat would be a good day. Not a Sat before a holiday. Most are traveling then.

    A Sat when there is no special holiday...so what say you?

    Looking forward to it...

    Has anyone noticed that Yooperlady and I work together as a team on things?

    Folks... I am a lucky man to have found this Lady!

    Smoochers to ya Honey!

    Ok all y'all... back to topic....
    Gun control isn't about the gun at all.... for those who want gun control it is all about their own fragile egos, their own lack of self esteem, their own inner fears, and most importantly... their own desire to dominate others. And an openly carried gun is a slap in the face to all of those things.

    What gun powder do you like to smell... I figure you carry several guns on you.....!!!!!!!!!!!!! so I guess there would be different smells...

    And the dew dispenser is across the hall. No changes in color there.

    Who needs whips and handcuffs. Things settle right down. No whipping here.

    I suppose your used to the whips and handcuffs....huh!!!!

    I don't like pain...I like pleasure....:celebrate :celebrate :celebrate :celebrate

    With freedom comes much responsibility. It is for this reason so many are loathe to exercise it.

    This is a GREAT idea! Taylor has a very nice park (Heritage) that has grills, a play area for the kids, pavilions, a wedding chapel (in case someone feels the urge to get hitched), shops, and a fishing pond. Also Taylor has many veterans memorials including a museum. I could reach out to my contacts at the VFW & Vets Museum if we decided on doing this in Taylor.

    This is a great idea however i would not plan it for any major holiday as there is almost always lots of events the veterans already are obligated to do, just my 2 cents but being Patriot Guard i do alot of events and often run into scheduling conflicts trying to get veterans on big holidays
