Your Bio

When manhood is shackled into its place
Nature oft forces a courageous race
Of women, who with heroic spirit,
Stamp within unborn children the merit
Denied their fathers. For what man's disdain
Keeps from one generation, the next will gain

(PICTURE OF MONTFORD POINT MARINE, JAMES E STEWART SR 1944)
