In the 243 years of our country’s existence, thousands of soldiers have fought for our freedom. They pledged their strength, skill, and lives to protect our liberties. Some wrote a blank check, giving their all. In Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, the Washington Post reports that “6,838 U.S. service members have died.” Freedom comes at a great cost, and we honor that cost along with the men and woman who paid it.
Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends. Freedom is not free!!

If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. - John 15:13
