Memorial Day freedom...

I'm not a lover of war
but I am a lover of freedom
 and sometimes you can't have one without the other
"I have never advocated war except as a means of peace."  
Ulysses S. Grant

{Plaque beside my grandfather's grave..}

I don't wish for any American to have to take up arms to defend my freedom
but I am beyond grateful that so many have willingly done so.

To those 
past 
present
future
who carry arms for me and my family..
THANK YOU

All we have of freedom, all we use or know -
This our fathers bought for us long and long ago.
~Rudyard Kipling, The Old Issue, 1899
