"If you know a soldier, the family of a soldier, or are aware of a soldier living in your neighborhood, please take the time to thank them for the sacrifice they are making on our behalf. The cost of freedom continues to be one of the highest priced commodities there is, and there are people willing to pay the price for us. May God bless them and their families that they would come back home to us safely."
