Absolutely! We're currently anxiously waiting to hear from John's granddaughter who is on one of the missions into Afghanistan. She, along with all the many others, are much on our minds and in our prayers these days. And we remember those who have already served with distinction so that we could live in a free land.

Thank you, Suzanne. May you and yours have a most excellent holiday!

I looked up the regiment ... cool info ... my background has the Dodge brothers from Kansas being in the Revolutionary War.

Enjoy the 4th ...

I've just been confessing my shortcomings in teaching this to my children on my blog!

Thanks for holding the standard high and reminding us to count the cost and remember what a treasure it is that we have any measure of freedom!
