    I've got an uncle who died during WWII. He is buried in North Africa. He and others made the ultimate sacrifice by not only fighting for our freedoms but dying for those freedoms. Have a blessed Memorial Day. Your sacrifice is not forgotten...
    For a man interested only in passin' through, he suddenly found himself entangled in a deadly struggle….

    This song is appropriate for today I believe. God bless all those who gave up their lives for our liberty.

    A pray goes out to those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom. My you be granted eternal peace.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.
