Freedom Ain't Free

source

In the United States to express gratitude to the military for defending personal freedoms. I fully admit my views are tainted as I married a man who was drafted into a war he didn’t even begin to understand. For many years he suffered and all us did too.

So this song means a lot to me. It touches my heart. 

It reminds me that I need to do my part. (although the word ain’t still hurts my ears! lol – my Mom said that was a cuss word!

Are we willing to participate and do the things we need to do to keep our freedoms? It doesn’t just happen.

What do you think?

  1. I was not in the military but I respect those who were a lot. I was of draftable age during the Vietnam War but I was a college student and had a very high lottery number but, even if that were the case, my lousy eyesight would have disqualified me. My father fought in the Philippines during World War II. Given his love of telling stories about his younger days and his silence on his war experiences, I could only imagine what a living Hell that must have been.

  2. I was in Thailand during the Vietnam War. We watched the planes take off from the US airforce base.

    I remember the million-mile stares when soldiers would first arrive in Bangkok

    Please thank your husband for his service. There is no greater gift than the willingness to give up everything so the rest of us can be safe.
