Nathaniel, we are all proud of your work on this project, as we are also proud of the 35 veterans on your Grammy's side of the family.
Here's an illustration of how much average citizens appreciate our veterans: in a recent church-related situation at a cemetery in Nesquehoning, PA, flags were unwisely removed from the graves of veterans. Veterans and citizens from a wide-spread area held a demonstration and prayer vigil at the cemetery. Within 2 days, the flags were replaced.
Nathaniel, you have lived up to the proud heritage of patriotism and citizenship in your family.
God bless America.

the bricks are NOT just for those who died in service, they are for ALL veterans that have served. The bricks are also not walked on, they are on paths surrounded by grass and people walk up to them, not on them. It is a wonderful project this young man did, it makes locating the brick of a loved one very easy to do now. Keep it up, Leominster needs more young people like him

Wow! What an outstanding job by a young man today! He did a great service to his community and to the veterans and families of those who served. Congratulations, Nathaniel, for sticking to this arduous project and best wishes on obtaining your Eagle Award. I hope that also makes the news! In today's age when we read so many negative headlines about youth, it is encouraging to read about one who stands above the rest!

You would be well versed in German or Japanese today and what a different world this would be if we had been defeated. You may think that we are sticking our noses into places you don't like. That would be wrong. There are countries out there begging for our help and aid. Who else, but us, would they ask for help...the Russians, the Chinese, Cuba, North Korea, Hugo Chavez. Think about it pal, you live in the greatest country in the world because America's best gave their lives and limbs for your freedom. By the way, in my personal opinion, you should get off the KoolAid and watch both channels to seek the truth.
Bill O'Rielly? I didn't know you posted on these threads.

Oh and I'll watch neither channel to seek my truth.

What a fine lad. In this day and age when teenagers are self-absorbed in their video games and text messaging, here is a young man who is making a difference in his community. This is testimony to a good upbringing by parents who put their children first, and who encourage their sons to reach their potential. Thank you Nathaniel and his parents for reminding us of what we can become when we live our lives to bless others.

Responsibility is the duty to to do what is right. It is the basis of the American values we hold self-evident. For example, it is the responsibility of the strong to defend the weak when a force of evil threatens the peace. The military is an organization dedicated for the building of strength for which to defend those who are helpless. The least we can do who do not fight ourselves is to support those who chose to lay their lives on the line to protect and serve our country. So many opinions have been twisted by the media trying to get papers sold that distortion wreaks havoc upon the minds of those that should at least be grateful. If American soldiers are fighting to keep the fight away from our soil and prevent attacks on those who could apparently care less, then maybe these complacent fools are undeserving of this protection. Protection is a privilege, not a right. I for one am humbly grateful for the American soldiers who fight for me and my family without even knowing me.
It is also ironic that Truth is the voice of deceipt.
God bless the grateful part of America only.
And good job Nathaniel.

Please don't give truth anymore attention on this forum....People like that thrive on the attention, whether it be good or bad....Focus on what the bricks mean to YOU, and stay proud!
