To the Editor:
The freedom we cherish, want and need to be successful in life is sometimes a forgotten asset by the citizens of the USA. Freedom is not free. In our country's history we have been at war or in a military conflict for 220 of our 240 years. This is not by design but necessity to corral and stop those who would like to force us to give up the freedoms we hold dear to us that are clearly spelled out in the documents our forefathers prepared, signed and died defending.
