Starting last week, we asked our friends and fans on Facebook to answer the question, what does freedom mean to you? The list has grown to hundreds of responses, with more being added—log in to our Facebook page to see what people are saying, and to add your own comments!
In honor of Wednesday’s July 4th holiday marking the anniversary of our nation’s independence, Concerned Veterans for America has prepared the following web video that deals with the same question:
We’ve recently seen evidence that many military personnel face a disconnect when they try to relate their professional experience to employers in the private sector. But based on some of the thoughtful comments in this video, that disconnect may not always be as great as people may think—the interviewees here offer thoughtful and sincere appreciations for the role our military personnel play in defending our freedoms.
This video and your Facebook responses should be reminder to all of us that Independence Day is much more than fireworks, cookouts and a day off from work. It’s a commemoration of the things that make our nation great, and the values we hold in common. Thanks for helping us to tell that story, and have a wonderful holiday.
