How To Spot A Geezer

"Geezers" are easy to spot. This is slang for an old man.

During a sporting event during the playing of the National Anthem, they will hold their caps over their hearts and sing without embarrassment. 

They know the words and believe in them. They remember World War I, the Depression, World War II, Pearl Harbor, Guadalcanal, Normandy and Hitler. They remember the Atomic Age, the Korean War, the Cold War, the Jet Age and the Moon Landing and Vietnam. 

If you bump into a Geezer on the sidewalk, he will apologize. Pass a Geezer on the street and he will nod, or tip his cap to a lady. 

Geezers trust strangers and are courtly to women. They hold the door for the next person and always when walking, make sure the lady is on the inside for protection. 

Geezers get embarrassed if someone curses in front of a women and children and they don't like violence and filth on TV and in movies. 

Geezers have moral courage. Geezers seldom brag unless it is about their grandchildren in Little League or music recitals. 

This country needs Geezers with their decent values and common sense.

We need them now more than ever. It is the Geezers who know our great country is protected not by the so-called politicians or police, but by the young men and women in our military that are serving their country in foreign lands, just as they did, without a thought except to do a good job and the best you can and to return home to loved ones. 

Each and everyone of us should thank God for Old Geezers!
