What does Freedom mean to you?
As I reflect on our nation’s independence and the celebrating of the 4th of July, it takes on a different significance this year because my husband is currently deployed aboard the USS Nimitz.
Freedom to me, is the ability to wake up each morning and tell my sweet little girls their daddy is keeping them safe and that someday, because of his hard work, they can grow up to be whatever their hearts desire.
I am grateful for the immense sacrifices it takes to keep this nation, the land of the free. I want to express my deepest thanks to all who are deployed this 4th of July, but especially to all the of the sailors and pilots aboard the USS Nimitz and the supporting strike group. May the sound of jet noise excite you as much as the bursting fireworks!

4 Ways to Celebrate Independence Day Overseas
Freedom is won by men who have spilled their blood on many foreign and domestic battlefields. They died so
all Americans get their fair share of the great American pie which is our wealth and natural resources. They did not
die to open new markets for Wall Street. Nor did they die for Americans to worry in their old age about their
social security benefits or their grandchildren having an expensive illness and no health insurance available to
cover it. They did not die so that the life expenctancy of the rich goes up and working Americans goes down. They
did not give their precious blood so McKesson wholesalers can become a rich drug pusher and suffer no consequences.
And that same McKesson CEO reap a huge salary and bonuses for his bloody work. No America. Those noble men who sleep
below the ground, who were denied a natural death, perhaps a loving wife and children are being desicrated by
the Republican swamp snakes who are thriving, laughing in our capitol. God help us.
I assume USAA will not publish this opinion. Perhaps they dwell in that same swamp?? You have to wonder.
