Good day to you.  The United States of America is 236 years old today, Independence Day (2012).

While we celebrate our Freedom by attending cook-outs, launching our boats, and enjoying other summertime pastimes; let us not forget our Freedom is not Free. 

Freedom is certainly not free to all of the United States Military who serve or have served our country with pride and patriotism.

So please, take a moment and reflect upon the reason for this Holiday and pay your respects to those who have sacrificed and died for your Freedom.

Peace be with you.
