American Men

A true man makes sacrifices in order to honor his commitments. Even though he will give much, the blessings he receives outweigh the sacrifice.

Put them on an amusement park ride and the testosterone sprays from their ears, man!! Whoooooeee!!!! Let's hear if for th' man and th' son. *Smile*



Future man? Yep, just likes playing with mum's stuff to show what he'll do to men who mess with him - shiners!

They are NOT afraid to "accessorize" when the occasion calls for it. The photo says: "Thanks! I pity the fool who don't like to accessorize!" LOL Cool lil dude!
*

Protect me and my family and country to their death if need be! I love our men in uniform. Ronda's son.
*

Play with their children and teach them good ol' American sports even at this tender young age.
*

I don't see any man in this picture that hasn't removed his hat for the National Anthem. These are men who love their country. And the woman who allowed me to use this photo told me that the man on the right in front was watching a man run up the aisle with his hat on. The man here used his own hat to smack the man and told him to remove his hat. He did. A true american loving man!!! I wish I knew him.

Teresa's son-in-law and son. You might want to read about her "love" for the son-in-law. A truly inspiring blog.

Her son

Dave who works hard to keep his wife at home for their 2 sons and daughter.

A loving dad to these 2 boys.

Real men absolutely do wear pink. I know this from experience. When my son was in USMC boot camp I had a shirt made for him. It was a pink t-shirt that said "I miss my mom" and he wore it with pride. Real men are not afraid to express their feelings and are comfortable in their masculinity. This is TJ, Sherry's son. TJ, I loooooove the shirt, honey.

This man is my brother-in-law, Love Bunny's brother. He retired from the U.S. Marine Corps in 2008 as a Colonel. He teaches at the War College in Pennsylvania. It's funny because he hugs just like my son so you know I have a soft spot for this man doubly because he is a Marine, my hubby's brother and a great American.

American men, we love y'all to pieces!

  6. I love this, especially the part where the guy smacked the other guy who had his hat on. More men need to do this to keep the younger ones in line and respectful.

  14. Yeah for Connie and our American men! All to often I read blogs among other things that are not supportive of the wonderful that grace this beautiful country.

    I am proud to be the "arm candy" to my guy who served 22 years in the military. He's a keeper!

  20. Wonderful post, my dear!!

    Being married to a retired military man myself, I can attest to their great patriotism.

    I've seen my hubby lean over and speak to more than one young man with his hat on during the National Anthem at a football game. One of them called him a name. Boy, did he get a lecture......from me!!

    Great message that deserves repeating.

    Bless you,

  22. What a wonderful, wonderful post!! Thank you so much for that!! I have an incredible husband who is not afraid to show emotion, wear pink, is a Navy Veteran who is extremely patriotic, would walk to the ends of the earth for a great roller coaster and outwardly shows his love for his Mom and Step Mom. He will go with me to any chick flick that I want to see and sometimes cries harder than I do!! : ) What makes him most incredible is that he married a woman (me!!) who had three young sons who were without a father due to my first husband's sudden death at the age of 40 and has taken on the roll of father, husband and my best friend as if we were a part of him his whole life. Amazing Grace, Connie. Amazing Grace!! XOXOXO
