Hearing "Okie From Muskogee" sung by the Swan Brothers on The Voice! Back in HS, my then boyfriend had his own version, and I hadn't heard it in years. I'm more of a rocker, but this was fun!

Hey, no spoilers, yet...the show just started here. They just got done with their first song.

My grandson who is 11 won a lot of awards at school today including the American Legion Award. We are so proud of him.

Thanks. We also saw a lot of other great kids get awards today. They also had a drawing to give one of the kids a bike, I wish everyone could have been there and seen the little boy who won, he was so excited and happy. It made everyone tear up. If all the children are as special as Josh and his classmates, I think the future will be in good hands.

congrats to your grandson, el joann.

what's the american legion award about?


my smile today is about my boy, once again.

he pitched a great game tonight, giving up only one earned run. unfortunately, we lost 10 - 9 due to 7 fielding errors.

and our 2 best hitters struck out with the winning runs on 2nd and 3rd.

but i'm so proud of him at how much he's improved this season, and how hard he's worked at it. three other coaches came to me tonight and complimented him on as much. they all want him for next year. lol. he might not be the best pitcher or the hardest thrower in the league, but he's got great control of his pitches and himself. he never gets down after a bad inning or at bat.

and now tomorrow night, i get to go see all of the projects on display that he's worked on all year in his "gifted and talented" class. i'm really looking forward to seeing all of his schoolwork that he's kept so secret from us, lol.

Buckytom;Youth are often awarded for their scholastic achievements, but The American Legion believes they should also be praised when they demonstrate strong qualities of character and good citizenship. That's why, since 1926, the Legion has recognized such students with its School Award Medal Program.
In 1921, the Department of Pennsylvania created the School Award Medal Program for the purpose of instilling character and helping perpetuate the ideals of Americanism among youth. The award is given to a boy and a girl in the graduating classes of elementary school, junior and senior high school, and college. Those who receive a medal must exemplify six qualities that define character: courage, honor, leadership, patriotism, scholarship and service.
Candidates for the award are voted upon by a school's faculty and members of the candidates graduating class through a secret ballot casting. The local Legion post involved with the school makes the final selection upon receiving recommendation from students and faculty. Each awardee receives a certificate and a medal with the six qualities listed on the face of the medal, as the back bares the Marine Corps motto, "Semper Fidelis" ("always faithful").
