Remembering our Soldiers... and Celebrating Freedom...

Today we pause to remember our soldiers. Men and Women that have given the greatest sacrifice that one can give. They have given their lives in service to and for Our Country.

They vow to "Serve and Protect"...

and so we celebrate Freedom in honor of our Soldiers lives...
Remember to pray for our Active Duty Soldiers and their families...
today and everyday...
Celebrating the Gift of Freedom down here in French Lique...


PS... The first time I heard this song performed, I got a lump in my throat and tears welled in my eyes... I hope you'll stick around long enough to watch this wonderful video from Cowboy2 at YouTube, and hear Tim McGraw sing "Already Home"...

Beautiful post Dixie. It truly is a gift, our freedom. It does not come cheaply, and it's wonderful to honor those who make it a reality every day. Hugs, Kathy

Do you realize if the we ever paid our enlisted forces what they are worth, it would bankrupt this country...how do you set a price tag for bravery and honor?

Hey Dixie!

Beautiful tribute to our men and women in the military! I have a friend at church who has a son who is in Afganistan right now. I have been sending him care packages. His mom says that he is saying that he will be getting to come home sometime after this Memorial Day weekend. I sure hope so!

Hugs,
Angela
