Who Died For Your Freedom Last Week? I’ll Tell You!

Many people post something in support of our military on a daily basis on their FB pages or blogs. But when a soldier pays the ultimate price and lays down his life protecting the freedom of our great country it goes largely unnoticed and that is about to change with me.  Each week I am going to post the names of those “who gave all” so we can remember them.  Every name has a link you can click to put a face to the name!  Let’s keep the hope that someday there will be no more names to report.
