Fisher House Web Site Logo We work to support the quality-of-life of our nation's military, veterans, and their families. We build comfort homes at military and VA medical centers known as "Fisher Houses" and give them as a gift to the government, so that families can afford to rally around their loved one who is receiving care at the nearby medical center. We continue to support the existing network of 30 Fisher Houses and help individual families in need staying at a Fisher House. We co-sponsor the Scholarships for Military Children with the Defense Commissary Agency and co-sponsor the Newman's Own Award for Military Community Excellence to recognize private organizations working to improve the quality-of-life at their local military installation in a partnership with Newman's Own and the Military Times Media Group.

--The Old Kunnel supports the cause and mission of Fisher Houses. Be sure to visit their site today for more information.

George Washington by Stuart

The Revolutionary War

The American Revolutionary War against the rule of England is well documented at this site commemorating it. All the information you seek will be found here. "It was freezing cold at Valley Forge but, up old George...."

George Washington, "The Father of His Country," first President of the United States of America, first in war, first in peace, first in the hearts of his countrymen, was born in Westmoreland County, Virginia, on February 22, 1732.

Washington was the indispensable President by:
(1) holding the Continental army together for eight years until the British decided that continuing the war was not worth the price;
(2) presiding over the Constitutional Convention that created the world's oldest written constitution;
(3) serving as our first President and, thus, establishing by example both the limits and prerogatives of the chief executive office of the American democratic republic;
(4) voluntarily giving up power both as a military commander and a political leader, thereby denouncing in advance, any potential Caesar or Napoleon in American politics; and,
(5) most importantly, providing by character and example, a model of republican citizenship.

Alabama State Capitol
I was looking for ... new site and found yours. I believe there are over 4000 associated with "live and die in Dixie." My purpose in setting up the site is to find out any information about my great grandfather Couch who fought in the Civil War. He was from Vinemont, Alabama.

World War I (The Great War)
Pvt Engholm, Luxembourg, 1919
My Great Grandfather Engholm fought the Germans in the Argonne Forrest in World War I. My Mother said his legs were injured very badly during the war, and he almost lost them. She told me you could smell the horse liniment that he used on his legs all over the small Missouri town that he lived in.

My granddad is the one sitting in the chair. This picture was taken the month before he got out of the Army.

Cousins: Sgt Loftin and Msgt Loftin
I have just returned from my Annual Training in the Texas Army National Guard. As you know, I am Battalion Motor Sergeant. Well, lo and behold, I was standing there in the old S&A building when in walks this young man with fire in his eyes. He says, "Is Master Sergeant Loftin here?" I said, "Yeah, right here." Looked at his name tag, LOFTIN. Oh, my goodness! Looking all young and stout like I think I still looked at 43. So we shook hands, and he said, "Are you related to Leonard?" I said, "Heck, isn't everybody?, because all the Loftin know Leonard was the first Loftin in America. He came over in 1609. As he had to go, as anybody in desert BDUs does these days, I told him we would meet again before he left. Today we talked again and took some pictures.

Sgt Loftin with fire in his eye His name is Sergeant Timothy C. Loftin. We figured out that we are 3rd cousins, 4 times removed. OK... call us Cousins, for short. He was born on May 29, 1970 and entered the Army in 1992. Tim is by nature an infantry soldier, and I'm guessing likes it that way by the look in his eye. He went to Ranger School in 1992. He is now attached to the 238th Maintenance Company out of San Antonio, Texas. I know where he's going, but I am not going to tell you. He will understand why when he gets the briefing. I will say, he is supporting Operation Enduring Freedom, and wearing an American flag on his shoulder. If you don't know what that means, ask me. His wife is Amy Kathleen and his daughter is Lauren Kathleen. I told him I would do what I could to wave the flag for another of a long line of Loftin warriors going back to Benoni Loftin* who was a foot soldier 25 years before the Declaration of Independence. * More on Benoni Loftin Click Here!

Hello My Friends,

Let me introduce you to Lt. Colonel Canfield D. Boone, 54, Clifton, VA.

and Lt. Colonel Jerry Don Dickerson, 41, Durant, MS.

They were both married with children and I am proud to say I knew them both and they were my friends. We served together during better times many years ago in what was a much different world. They both died on September 11, 2001 at the Pentagon.

They will not be forgotten as long as I live.

My best >>> Todd/Xyzzz
