American Patriot/Hero of the Week

This was supposed to be last week's hero post, but as I said, I fell behind. Often when the story of the birth of our great nation is told, we think of the leaders of The Revolution, our Founding Fathers (not "The Framers"). These were great men, one and all, but this week, I want to honor a different set of revolutionary heroes, the common soldiers who fought and died to bring forth the greatest nation this world has ever known. It is still close enough to Independence Day that I ask that everyone reading stop and take a minute to think on these great men, the sacrifices they made, our debt to them and the freedoms we enjoy. Without them we would still be subjects of the crown without many of the freedoms that are taken for granted all to often today. We owe them, and their memories, more than we can ever repay.
