Army Pfc. Barrett L. Austin Made The Ultimate Sacrifice For Us Last Week – Week 16 Honor Post
Another week and another soldier who has paid the ultimate price since last Monday’s post. These warriors have paid the ultimate price for our freedom. Please remember, “Freedom” isn’t free at all; someone has to pay for it. Please make it a point this week to go out of your way and thank a soldier. It’s a good habit to get into!
