My Freedoms Have Been Paid

With a Tremendous Cost


Annie said...

You said it and the photos demonstrate the high cost beautifully.

One of the things I hate about human nature is the warlike aspect of it.

Roger said...

Amazing Gracie said...

"Those who fail to remember history..."
I hear people talking/writing about not dwelling on this kind of "stuff," but it's exactly what our fellow citizens need to see.
I'm so grateful to all who have fallen in the line of duty.

Odat said...

That got me right here....(pointing to heart).

(Did the tag!)


Matt-Man said...

Nice shots Jeff. Cheers!!

Desert Songbird said...

Indeed they have. For all of us.

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

Yes, at a very high cost. Thank you for the sobering reminder. Have a great day. :)

Oswegan said...

Wow, nice shots.

I didn't realize you were an ABC'r but Sacrifice is definately a good one.


p.s. I'm a VFW. Thankfully not a dead one.

Annie- War always brings grief with its victories

Mel- Thanks

Roger- Appreciate the visit

Katherine- Remembering is painful but necessary

Travis- Thank you for serving our country

Gracie- Hopefully our past motivates us to make a better future

Odat- I remember standing in Arlington National about twenty years ago when I took the 2nd shot. I didn't know a single soldier who was buried there, but I was overcome with emotion and wept for them all.

Matt- Thanks

Songbird- We are fortunate

Sandee- The ultimate price

Oswegan- Thanks, there scaned from photos I took twenty years ago in D.C.
