As you celebrate this holiday, never forget the price of your liberty nor those far from home standing in vigilant guard over you and your liberty every day.
“As to liberty, the heroes who signed that great document pledged themselves to buy liberty with their lives. Liberty is always unalienable; it must be redeemed regularly with the blood of patriots or it is always vanquished. Of all the so-called ‘natural human rights’ that have ever been invented, liberty is least likely to be cheap and is never free of cost.”
– Robert A. Heinlein, Starship Troopers
