Bucyrus in Crawford County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Crawford County's Veterans Hall Of Fame
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream it must be fought for protected and handed on for them to do the same.
The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it and one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender or submission.
John F. Kennedy
History has taught us over and over again that freedom is not free. When push comes to shove. The ultimate protectors of freedom and liberty are the brave men and women in our armed forces throughout our history. They've answered the call in bravery and sacrifice.
We're blessed with the opportunity to stand for something. For liberty and freedom and fairness and these things are worth fighting for worth devoting our lives to.
Let every nation know whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
John F. Kennedy
