Veterans Day

Yesterday the little town of Freeport FL held its annual Veterans Day celebration. What a surprise to see almost the entire town turn out to listen to patriotic songs, to listen to speeches praising the native sons who served and are still serving in out military service and to dedicate monuments in their honor including war dogs.  Of course Eglin Air Force Base is only about 30 miles away and it is obvious that many military retirees live in Walton County including Freeport.  It is also equally obvious that this is a republican area of Florida populated with patriots who love and support the fundamentals on which this country was built.
