John Anderson – "Freedom Isn't Free"

source

It’s a hard day for us. My husband was forever changed because he was drafted straight from high school into a war that he didn’t even understand. That haunts him every day in one way or another.

He cannot watch much of the news because the anger comes back in waves he does’t even understand. He still doesn’t understand why his friends gave their life and in his heart nothing has really changed. People just keep on fighting and people just keep dying.

He honors that flag. He stands true and he will always be broken. Freedom isn’t Free.

What do you think?

  1. My older brother volunteered to serve in Vietnam and was stationed in Pleiku from 1966-1968. To this day he struggles with Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome and survivor guilt, as of all his friends from that time he is the only one who didn’t die there or commit suicide after coming back. He joined Vietnam Veterans Against the War when he returned to the USA doing everything he could to see that war end so that other young men wouldn’t be put through what he had experienced.
