Four (4) more soldiers have paid the ultimate price since last Monday’s post. Please remember, “Freedom” isn't free at all; someone has to pay for it; just like these four brave men. Please make it a point to share this on your FB pages and social media sites so that everyone knows, every week, that these young men and women continue to die every week.
