People Are Flocking to the Home of a North Texas Family to See This Amazing Handmade Steel Replica

Published

A family located in a North Texas community is attracting lots of visitors to their home, thanks to a beautifully well done recreation of the Iwo Jima Memorial that was handmade from steel.

The piece was created by Tim Hall, a man who owns a sign company, who came up with the re-create the memorial from 12-gauge steel from his company. The project was carried out by Hall, his son Clint, and several friends.

“I was like, alright, let’s do it,” Clint Hall said of his dad’s idea.

Tim Hall has dubbed the piece “Tribute re-creation.” It was intended to help bring The Colony’s community members together, but it’s drawing people from miles away. The Colony is about 25 miles north of Dallas.

People who were once strangers are quickly becoming friends at the memorial dedicated to military service members and first responders — past and present.

“It is important to remember what other people do for you,” Tim Hall, who never served in the military, said.

Many of the memorial’s visitors are moved to share stories about their service.

“Just hearing the stories” of the veterans who’ve stopped by to catch a glimpse of the statue has impacted Tim Hall.

This is a really awesome, cool tribute to the soldiers who fought and died for the liberty we enjoy on a daily basis. It serves as a much needed reminder that freedom isn’t free, that men and women have shed their blood in order for us to have the liberty we have and we owe it to them to preserve their memory and tell their story.

If you are looking for a great way to teach your kids about American history, the story of Iwo Jima — or anything from World War II really — is an amazing tale they won’t soon forget.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
