With my brother who served in the US Army and later in the Army Reserves.
My children holding the ribbons of their great grandfather who helped in the war effort as a merchant marine. I taught them how people fought to preserve freedom so that they can freely worship God and become whatever God wants them to become.
Happy Independence Day to you. The deaths of our relatives remind us that freedom is not free. To keep us free, all gave some and some gave all - the ultimate sacrifice of their lives. Let us pray for our military and appreciate those who are fighting for us. And I on my part will spend my time fighting tyranny and socialism with the Tea Party.
