beach, park, lake, or just the backyard to enjoy burned critters and beverages of all sorts, please, take five minutes and remember those that have served and gave the ultimate sacrifice to ensure your freedom. I am proud to have served, but I am reminded the cost of freedom wasn’t just paid at places like Bunker Hill or Yorktown. It was also paid in places like San Antonio (Remember the Alamo!), the trenches of WWI, Pearl Harbor, Chosin Reservoir, Khe Sahn, Kandahar, New York, and Baghdad. Freedom requires a total commitment and a will to fight and die for it.
To my friends in uniform, thank you for that willing sacrifice.
