Reply Lee August 29, 2013 at 8:40 pm A Native American holding the American flag. Hmm. Reply ZZZ August 29, 2013 at 10:12 pm People sometimes forget, the Indians were here long before all the immigrants from everywhere came and took over their land. I love that they still teach their children their heritage and make them a part of it. Lame Deer, Mt., lots of real cowboys and Indians still there!!

Reply FYI August 30, 2013 at 10:13 am Lee and others … Native tribes, as sovereign nations, deal with the federal government at the same level as state governors and by virtue of taxes paid … yes, Natives pay federal taxes … enjoy the same freedoms, benefits and protections as do all U.S. citizens. In return, Native Americans have the highest per-capita participation in the U.S. armed forces of any ethnic group. As a result, if anything, natives are even more likely to be seen honoring the American flag than the average American. Visit the tribute to "Sleeping Warriors" at the entrance to Pala Cemetery and see last year’s Emmy award winning documentary at http://www.DefendingTheHomeland.com for more proof. And to Ken Seals, thanks for the outstanding photography!

Thornton, navy SEAL MOH recipient? Reply Lee August 30, 2013 at 8:06 pm @ FYI #5 My comment above was an extension to my comment #2 @ http://www.thevillagenews.com/story/70852 Reply WT August 31, 2013 at 9:24 am Lee: Nobody cares what your comment was an extension of. We know that nothing you say is either relevant or of any importance. However, it is your right to say whatever silly thing that comes into your head, so go ahead, waste our time. Reply Lee September 1, 2013 at 7:46 am @ #8 WT Has the thought of you not reading my comments ever occurred to you? Reply WT September 1, 2013 at 10:55 am @Lee: I didn’t say it wasn’t a source of entertainment. I enjoy a good laugh as much as the next guy….. Reply Queen September 2, 2013 at 11:35 am While oft times I disagree with Lee or don’t quite understand what he says, with regards to Lee’s post here (#2) and WT: WT, perhaps it would do you well to go read Lee’s comments with regard to http://www.thevillagenews.com/story/70852 and you may have a different response to Lee’s comment here….that is IF I understand Lee today.
