When I was serving in Afghanistan with the US. Army. One evening they were playing retreat of the colors, there were two flags flying on the post I
was stationed. The Stars and Stripes and the Union Jack. I said to a British trooper, "There are two flags as long as I live, that will never fall."
He smiled at me and said.... "likewise". I ment what I said. If he did or not? I can not tell.
But to my English cousins. I want you to know, there is at least one American, proud to be so, that will share a foxhole with you anyday to defend
your sovereignty as both my grandfathers did.
That said. The United states is a "Union" of free and sovereign states. We Americans are dealing with a federal government/power that is way
overstepping the bounds imposed upon it by law.
I hate to see you folks dealing with that and turning your once great nation into nothing more than a county.
