SSgt John J. Ignash, U.S. Army, Korean and Vietnam Veteran, once said,

"Freedom IS free for those who have never served," and their sacrifice carries over to their families. 

                              How true!!



Freedom's Never Free is in honor of the brave men and women who choose to serve our country and pay the cost of freedom proudly and without complaint. These brave men and women did so while displaying honor, integrity, strength, selflessness, character, loyalty, courage, respect, and an unwavering sense of duty.

Highlights of Freedom's Never Free includes a Veterans Pinning Ceremony, USO Dance, Flag Retirement Ceremony, and more. 

Freedom's Never Free will conclude with an appreciation ceremony on November 2nd with the presentation of 2 American Flags flown during the event to an honored living Veteran and First Responder. Taps will be played by a single bugler each evening of the event and to conclude the ceremony at 6 p.m.

We encourage those who have and are currently serving, to join us and allow us to recognize you.  

We encourage civilians to join us and take this opportunity to personally thank those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom and the freedom of many around the world.


Attendees are encouraged to bring their worn and tattered American Flags to be properly retired.
