30 May Recapturing US

David French’s Memorial Day article is truth and speaks to the problem of our fractured nation. http://www.nationalreview.com/article/448069/memorial-day-united-states-armed-services-unity-political-fragmentation-james-mattis
We are the enemy and we are destroying ourselves from within. All Americans, regardless of political, religious, cultural or personal backgrounds must recapture the meaning of US. Life is about US! It’s not about you or me.
My father, Master Sergeant Roddie Edmonds, and his valiant men learned the lesson of US in a harsh Nazi POW camp in Germany during WWII. When ordered by the Nazi Commander to send out only the Jewish Americans, my father told his men, “We’re not doing that, tomorrow we ALL fall out.” And that is what they did. When the Nazi Major stormed to my father demanding the Jews to step forward, my father said, “We are ALL Jews here!” When the Nazi pressed his revolver to my fathers head threatening his life he did not waiver. Neither did ALL of the 1275 valiant American doughboys with him. And our Jewish men were saved. ALL heores, ALL alive because they ALL stood as one.
They understood the power of US! We must do the same! We must lay aside our differences and become one again by asking what’s best for US rather than what’s best for me. We live in the USA which begins with US. I pray we will begin living that way. www.roddieedmonds.com
