This concerns the National WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C. and the "Registry" that is associated with the memorial. If you had someone in your family that served in WWII, you can place their name into the "Registry". The web site is located at: http:// In the menu on the left, you can click on WWII Registry. Then, at the top of that page, you can click on "Register an Honoree" and fill out the form. It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a mess about having "In God We Trust" on our money and having God in the Pledge of Allegiance. Why don't we just tell the 14% to Sit Down and SHUT Special Thank-You The Past Presidents & Past Commanders of Cantigny Post 367 would like to thank every one who worked, bought tickets, & donated to the Joliet Hospice Home Wish List Benefit held on Wednesday May 5, 2004. A check for $5,000.00 was presented that evening to Mr Duane Krieger of the Joliet Hospice. Winners of the RAFFLE were: 1st place Glenn Ellena 2nd Shellie Marshall 3rd place Ernest Dukes Thank You Again Mary Mihelich & Joe Babich Co-Chairman

is is eerie,,,,, This is something to think about! Since America is typically represented by an eagle. Saddam should have read up on his Muslim passages... The following verse is from the Quran, (the Islamic Bible) Quran (9:11) -- For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a fearsome Eagle. The wrath of the Eagle would be felt throughout the lands of Allah and lo, while some of the people trembled in despair still more rejoiced; for the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah; and there was peace. Note the verse number!!!!!)
