Military Appreciation Concert At Cherry Point

Who has ever heard of a country music concert starting at 6:00 A.M.? It's not so unusual if you're accustomed to starting your day before 5:00 A.M..

For the Marine at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point in Havelock, this sunrise country music concert was a reprieve from work duty.

Country music songwriter and singer Sarah Buxton serenaded about 100 Marines Friday morning. It's part of an appreciation day the Marine Corp Community Services provides through out the year.

Corporal Dustin Worley says these day are special to him, since it won't be long before they're sent overseas for duty. "It makes me understand we are wanted and we are needed and therefore for us to provide for civilian families out in the world, everywhere, it just means the world to us."

WITN and Thunder County radio station were proud sponsors of Friday morning's appreciation day.

    To all of those leaving hatred comments back and forth to each other, yes the military has protected those right whom our founding fathers wrote for us, after the original U.S. government known as the revolutionaries fought for us in the first place, and no i do not support war, and neither am i against it, although regardless i will be grateful for what not only todays military are doing for us but those in the past as well, for they are only doing what out country and the president, including Obama who himself has kept them across seas, tells them to do.

    C, for what it's worth, I couldn't agree more with your comments. Postings by Soldierhater and Rob just go to prove that ignorance is still plentiful in our great nation. Who would defend their rights if we had no military? Does the constitution itself not make the provision for a standing army? Apparently they have not studied the history of America. Opinions are great, but their ignorant comments can hardly be construed as enlightened debate. They need to grow up and stop sounding like elementary age children--or perhaps they are!

    Two Frank Burns wannabes, three bleeding heart liberals and it isn't enough, one clueless turd has to chime in with nothing to say at 3:41 pm.

    Anonymous: I have no desire to be Frank Burns,or anyone else other than myself. I'm merely doing what everyone else who posts on here does: Saying what I believe.

    From what I see, this is a debate between a couple of Frank Burns wannabes and at least three bleeding heart liberals. Makes for good entertainment.

    Soldierhater:I see that you don't take kindly to being proven wrong.

    Soldierhater: Fine with you ? Great. So quit posting and start packing already; I hear China is lovely this time of year. You see, there's yet ANOTHER freedom we have that you should thank our military for: The freedom to leave anytime you wish. By the way, you sound as though you've taken a mere disagreement and turned it into personal dislike for Tad and myself. I would like to think that two adults could engage in a spirited exchange of ideas without coming to dislike one another. Judging by your previous posting, you disagree with that. Fine. For the record, I do not dislike you; indeed, we don't even know each other, so how could I ? Rather, I just don't take you seriously because I see that you are prone to being irrational...particularly when you're proven wrong.

    soldierbator, Rob and whoever, I put myself on the line for many years so you would continue to enjoy the right to be stupid, disrespectful, arrogant, unappreciative, spoiled and/or silly. You're welcome even though you don't have the common courtesy, decency, honesty or common sense to say thank you. I am not ticked off at the little inconsequential worms who disrespect the heroes who have kept America free and the hope for world wide freedom alive. I knew you existed when I enlisted. Your misguided lack of logic didn't matter then and doesn't matter now. I must concede though, I would love to see you in a cage with a marine for 30 seconds. I detest unwarrented violence and wouldn't want him to hurt you but I wouldn't mind watching you shake in fear and wet your panties for fear that he might. Soldierbator, I wish you had the chance and the courage to tell be face to face what I could do with my country, I'd laugh at you.

    Fine with me, C. I'd love to tell you what you and Tad can do with your country, but WITN won't allow me to post it.
