Bloviating Zeppelin: Flag Raising at Sunset Beach, New Jersey: a Veteran Honors the Fallen

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Flag Raising at Sunset Beach, New Jersey: a Veteran Honors the Fallen




Marvin Hume, an 89-year-old WWII Navy veteran, raises and lowers US flags that have draped the coffins of American servicemen and women. He does this to honor our fallen soldiers, those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to this country.

Mr Hume, a Navy veteran, has been performing this ceremony on his property for the past 38 years, and does so seven days a week from Memorial Day to mid-October each year. He teaches youngsters how to fold the American flag and treat it with respect.

Marvin Hume is one of the very last of The Greatest Generation, for their numbers are now but a handful after their service in World War II.

A moment on Sunday, if you please, for The Greatest Generation and our US military forces.
