In Honor of Veterns Day




There is so much to be said about the man in the pictures you can type SFC Paul R Smith into Google and you will receive tons of websites with one reference or another to him. He was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his heroic actions on April 04,2003 where he saved the lives of his men one of those men was my husband and today seemed an appropriate day to say "Thank You" again and remind everyone that Freedom isn't Free!

You can read what the Medal of Honor website says about him here.
