As Leonidas Battle King of the Spartans said to the Persians at the Pass at Thermopylae in 300 BC when asked to Disarm His Forces, Step Aside and Let the Persian Lead Armies Pass Into the Southern Hellenic Areas "Come And Get Them".

Twenty Thousand Persians and their Allies Died, Unknown thousands of Spartan Allies Died, All 300 Spartan Peers Died.  The Persians Were Stopped and Defeated by the Massed Hellenic Armies who encouraged by the Spartan Example Quite Running, Took up their Arms, Stood and Fought for Their Freedom thus ensuring Western Civilization had a Chance to Continue on to the Present Day.  Hooah Sarge the Poet

Fundaments of Freedom 1


"The totalitarian states can do great things, but there is one thing they cannot do: they cannot give the factory-worker a rifle and tell him to take it home and keep it in his bedroom. That rifle hanging on the wall of the working-class flat or labourer's cottage, is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there."

There is a Price For Freedom
The Families of Service
Members Pay It.




Dear Americans,

Now that the heavy fighting is over in Iraq, it's
easy to think that America's job there is over. 
That's not the case though, as we've seen recently.
Our men and women in uniform are putting their lives
in danger each day.  

Below is an email from Ollie North and Sean Hannity. Ollie
has a wonderful organization called Freedom Alliance, 
dedicated to helping the children of servicemen and women.

Check it out. 

For America,

Bruce Eberle

Subject: The Ultimate Sacrifice: A message from Sean Hannity & Ollie North

Dear Fellow American,

We're writing to you about a heartfelt concern that is very
important to us all - the welfare of our soldiers, sailors,
airmen and Marines - and their families.

As we finish commemorating the Birth of this great nation,
let us not forget the ultimate sacrifice given by hundreds
of brave men and women who gave their lives defending us
from terrorists. So we're asking patriotic Americans like
you to come to the aid of their families. You may have
already heard me talk about this effort on my nationally
syndicated radio show.

Let me tell you how your urgent help is needed.

Freedom Alliance, a non-profit organization founded by Ollie
North, long ago established a Scholarship Fund to provide
college scholarships to the dependent children of military
personnel who have been killed or permanently disabled in
the line of duty.

Ollie started this program because he knows what it is like
to hold a dying man in his arms - something he did all too
often during his service in Vietnam.

More recently, Ollie was an "embedded" correspondent for Fox
News covering the war in Iraq. He was with a Marine medivac
unit and once again watched brave Americans die for the
cause of liberty.

Hearing the painful stories and the tremendous sacrifice
made by so many brave Americans, I offered my help.

That is why today, Ollie and I are asking you to help us
help the families, especially the children, of those brave
Americans who have been killed or permanently disabled
defending the interests of our great nation.

Ollie and I know we can count on you to make a
tax-deductible contribution of $25, $35, $50, $100 or even
as much as $250, $500 or $1000 to the Freedom Alliance
Scholarship Fund at

Whatever you can give will be a Godsend to the children of
our brave servicemen and women who were killed or
permanently disabled.

We want to provide scholarships to as many students as
possible that qualify for this assistance.

Ollie and I have also organized a special tribute to our
armed forces - a "Hannity Freedom Concert", (,
to welcome home the troops.

This Freedom Concert will take place on July 11, 2003 at Six
Flags Great Adventure, in New Jersey. My talk show will be
broadcast live from the event from 3:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.
Six Flags is generously donating a portion of the proceeds
to benefit this effort.

Won't you help too?

Please send $25, $50, $100, $500, $1000 or whatever amount
you can afford to today.

When you click on the highlighted link, you will be taken to
a secure Web Site where you can make your contribution and
not have to worry about unauthorized use of your credit card

Whether you give $25, $50, $100, $1000 or any other amount,
your contribution ( will benefit the
dependent children of military personnel who have been
killed or permanently disabled in the line of duty.

We thank you for taking the time to read this letter and
Ollie and I thank you in advance for your contribution.
Remember, "We never stand so tall as when we stoop to help a
