Lest we forget.... Freedom isn't free. Thanks to all our Cannon County Veterans and to those who paid with the supreme sacrifice.

late in the evening on Veteran's Day I heard from a soldier who told me that our son (1LT Walkup) saved his life the day he died. I am sure that many of the others whose names are engraved on the monument performed heroic deeds as well, and for them our counrty is forever in debt. Never Forget!
