The fourth of July

Declaration of independence

Our treasured Declaration of Independence set the stage for our Nation’s future.

We are a free Country because we chose to be free and fought to be free from the constraints of England over two hundred years ago.

Even today, when called upon, we continue to fight for freedom worldwide.

It is my perception that in many instances these countries fail to appreciate the fact that we are sending our young to help give them freedom from oppression.

My undying gratitude goes out to our military men and women fighting these wars.  May God be with each one of you.

If I were younger, I would join you again.

Danny M. O’Dell, USAF, 1965-1969
