The Price of Freedom

Sums It Up Pretty Well
Sums It Up Pretty Well

Many businesses will honor the United States tradition of closing their doors to doing business, and take a day off from work, to remember the price of freedom.

Be the change you wish to see in the world. Fly the American Flag proudly. Honor our United States Military, even if you are against war.

In fact, no one likes war. And yet our Service Men and Service Women put their very lives on the line so that we can sleep under a blanket of freedom each night that few have ever known.

  1. You’re welcome Skip.
    Feeling a bit inadequate in trying to express a gratitude that is real and surreal.
    Since I’ve never actually volunteered to be sent to a hostile place with no guarantee of ever returning home, it’s surreal trying to imagine what that must feel like.
    And then to imagine doing what you did Skip, coming home, and having a large percentage of our Country treat soldiers with disrespect, or at the very least, an ungrateful attitude.
    My dedicated, courageous Marine friend, on behalf of my entire Family, THANK YOU!

  2. Ok, your gratitude is appreciated and accepted, but not as much as what you and your fellow Marines did and do for us each and every day!

  3. Okay boys. Let some others in here . . . . 🙂

    Skip, there are some of us who will never have the courage, the will or the guts to serve our country in a manner that is deserving of the freedoms that are the foundation of the greatest country in the world.

    I have not had the pleasure of meeting you. But, the respect and honor given you by Jeff is enough in my book.

    A heartfelt Thank You for serving our country.


  4. David, unknowingly, you’ve made me feel like the efforts to honor Skip, and ALL the others, paid off. Thank you for elbowing in.
