The price of freedom…
The Freedom Wall Washington DC.
The banner photo is most apt being the ‘Freedom Wall’ WW2 Memorial Washington DC. The Baton’s purpose is to carry a Message of Conscience for those who protect our freedoms and their families, reminding society to ensure the very best of support for them in times of peace as well as war.
The wall has 4,048 gold stars, each one representing 100 American military dead, amounting to more than 400,000 sailors, soldiers, marines, airmen, and other military personnel who lost their lives or remain missing in action in World War II. In front of the wall, a stone fittingly reads, “Here we mark the price of freedom.”
