Fireworks at Rose Creek Country Club
And Soldier Dave Kropp
Gets a Medicare Jet-Setters Groovy Review
One of the many reasons we enjoy fireworks is they are an omen of enthusiasm, creativity, and talent. The appeal of watching firework shows is an interesting part of being American. We love the tradition of watching the fireworks. However, fireworks are magic. It is like a mere human has temporarily made new stars grander, brighter, and more multifaceted than what is already there.
Wherever you view fireworks this holiday weekend, from your patio, your TV, or organized events, may you feel the pride of being an American pulse through your veins. God Bless America.
Thank you, Dave, and Margo Kropp, for inviting us to enjoy an unforgettable evening of fireworks at Rose Creek Country Club.
I dressed in red, white, and blue. For some reason, I think it shows respect for the holiday. I loved seeing all the patriotic colors worn by the others in attendance. Many people had decorated their golf carts. The night was full of joy, pride, and Ohs and Ah’s. The fireworks were beautiful and thrilling. The sound of boom and sizzle filled the air. The evening had a feel of United we Stand; we are America!
A special thanks to Dave Kropp, who shared with us the story of his service in Vietnam. Dave received two purple hearts and two bronze stars. One of his bronze stars was for valor and the other for meritorious service. I had never seen either medal close up before, and it was an honor to stand beside the man who had earned both tributes.
Dave Kropp was a conscientious objector. He never carried a weapon. Dave said he grew up believing, “Thou shalt not kill.”
Yet, he was a soldier that earned the bronze stars and purple hearts without ever carrying a rifle. He did his part as a medic and showed bravery beyond what we civilians can even imagine.
I wanted to understand the meaning of these medals.
The Bronze Star Medal from the web site https://www.medalsofamerica.com/
The Bronze Star Medal recognizes service members who show acts of heroism in the field or who are meritorious in their work. To qualify, service members must perform these acts during an armed conflict against an enemy of the United States. The medal is awarded in three categories: valor, merit, and achievement.
The Purple Heart from 8 Things You Need to Know About the Purple Heart Medal · United Service Organizations (uso.org)
The Purple Heart medal is presented to service members who have been wounded or killed as a result of enemy action while serving in the U.S. military. A Purple Heart is a solemn distinction and means a service member has greatly sacrificed themselves or paid the ultimate price while in the line of duty.
Dave and Margo, as Medicare Jet-Setters, we want to thank you again. The invitation to such a spectacular 4th of July Fireworks Show and attending with such a man of courage and bravery who fought for us in Vietnam is priceless.
Medicare Jet-Setters give Rose Creek Country Club Fireworks Show and Dave Kropp a groovy rating.
