Testimonial – Charles T. Myer
Testimonial: Open letter to the President, Congress, and Representatives
The United States. From the Voice of Americas Honored Dead.
We took an Oath to support and defend the Constitution of The United States. against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same. etc..
The same Oath you took. We gave our lives in the defense of that Constitution. You should be ashamed of your leadership. WHAT have YOU done to the United States of America? The Country that we gave our lives for! It is time for you to take responsibility for your actions and the condition that the United States is in. The Constitution is the LAW of of the United States, not your personal WHIMS. Unless a citizen is a felon or mentally incompetent, the Constitution stands as written, with NO RESTRICTIONS or LIMITATIONS. So NEVER pass anything to the CONTRARY. If you break faith with us who die. We shall not sleep.
Written by Charles T. Myer.
COMMENTS: I have served in the Drafted Army, the Regular Army, and the Michigan National Guard. I was a Paratrooper with the 11th Airborne during WWII. Airborne All the WAY.
A year or so ago, I went with the Honor Flight to see the WWII Memorial. What impressed me more was Arlington Cemetery. To see row after row of Crosses, as far as you could see. A poem expresses my thoughts.
In Flanders Fields the poppies grow,
Between the crosses row by row.
That marks our place and in the sky,
The Larks still bravely singing fly.
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the dead. Short time ago,
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders Fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The Torch, be yours to hold it high.
If you break faith with us how die,
We shell not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders Fields.
I took the Oath on October 5th. 1944 when I entered the Military Service. By that Oath I still have an Obligation to act and speak for those Comrades in Arms.
