    So very sad that there are wars. If there is anything I would come near to hating it would be war. In my opinion we can never honor and show respect enough to those who go to war to help keep us all safe and free. These pictures are fantastic! Hugs

  2. We can never really give enough thanks to the people who have given their lives for our freedom.

  3. A big Salute to those brave, fallen patriots! God Bless them and their families. While not Georgians, we honor these brave ppl who fought for freedom and paid the ultimate sacrifice.
