Today marks the birth of an organization of men and women for whom the words: patriotism, duty and selfless service are not mere words but an embolden part of their everyday lives. This organization is made up of men and women who decided to distinguish themselves by choosing to take a path that is less traveled: the path of being a member of the United States’ Armed Forces.

I AM THAT WHICH OTHERS DON'T WANT TO BE. I GO WHERE OTHERS FEAR TO GO, AND DO WHAT OTHERS FAIL TO DO. I ASK NOTHING AND RELUCTANTLY ACCEPT THE THOUGHT OF ETERNAL LONELINESS... SHOULD I FAIL.

Please take a moment and visit this site to send a plea to President Obama for the extension of the Liberian DED immigration status. Thousands of families risk being torn apart if the President does not help. I am sure each one of us has a family member or knows someone who is on TPS. Please pass this on to your co-worker and friends and educate them on the current condition of Liberia.
