- “And I’m proud to be an American, where at least I know I’m free, and I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me and I’ll proudly stand next to him to defend her still today, ‘cuz there ain’t no doubt I love this land, God bless the USA.” -Lee Greenwood
Hello Naples Tea Party Patriots……….Part of our Mission Statement reads, “we acknowledge and support all who through their courage and loyalty have served in any of the armed services of the United States of America and through their efforts have secured our country’s existence and safety for this and future generations.” Naples Tea Party members are urged to participate in any of the following Memorial Day services this coming weekend.
This Sunday, May 29th, the Pine Ridge Patriots will set up a memorial in honor of our troops at the intersection of Pine Ridge Road and US 41. We meet one block north of Pine Ridge Road and on the east side of US 41. The event starts at 10:00 AM and runs till 12 Noon. Please feel free to stop by for a few minutes and stand side-by-side some veterans in uniform in order to show your appreciation for the men and women who have served in the past or present with our armed forces. Bring a camera and share pictures with friends or active duty members in the military. Show your love for America’s finest.
In remembrance of those who have sacrificed and given their lives to protect and preserve our freedoms and our way of life…..

WHY IS IT THAT SOME UNDERSTAND WHAT MATTERS ABOUT
AMERICA AND THEY RESPECT IT SO DEEPLY THAT THEY
ARE WILLING TO MAKE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICES FOR IT?
AND TOO MANY OTHERS … HAVE NO CLUE?
This slide show consists of photos taken at a formal
dinner at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in
It is a beautiful presentation of the honor,
commitment and pride today’s heroes share with yesterday’s.
Wouldn’t hurt if all other Americans saw it too!
Have a safe Memorial Day weekend everyone. God bless,
Naples Tea Party
