Military Times

When a soldier pays the ultimate price and lays down his or her life protecting the freedom of our great country it goes largely unnoticed; until now. Every week I post the names of those “who gave all” from the previous week so we can remember them and remember why we have the freedom we do. Let’s keep the hope that someday there will be no more names to report.
