Freedom has a face. It is the face of every man
and woman that has served this country. We know that freedom is not free. It
comes with a price. It is the price of hopes and dreams that are lost when
loved ones pay the ultimate sacrifice while serving this great Nation. It is
important that we not forget these American heroes. Pictures help us to connect
to these people. We see a picture and through the image we can almost feel the
person's pain or their determination. It is these recorded images that
provide a lasting history. They capture for one moment what these brave men and
women were feeling. They represent a "face of sacrifice."
