“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants”…..Thomas Jefferson

“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, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States of America, where men were free”………Ronald Reagan

“In the process of gaining our rightful place, we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline”…………Martin Luther King, Jr.

“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed”…….John 8:36

“From the bottom of our hearts, and with great humility & pride, “THANK YOU”to all our service men & women (prior & current),especially the ones that gave all, who make/made that sacrifice every single day, so that we can live free on this sacred ground”……Thank you Navy Special Warfare Operator Chief Collin Trent Thomasfor your ultimate sacrifice, sir – you are gone, but certainly not forgotten, and are a true patriot-hero……Godspeed on the other side of Heaven……we were all deeply honored to run your workout this morning @ our beloved Ambush…….Bambi, out.
