The Cost of Our Freedom

Happy Birthday America!  I made this little Jar Doll as inspiration to put on the picnic table on Independence Day.  I make the repurposed dolls often and will post a blog soon with detailed instructions.

Today I found something I would like to pass on to you.  The song says “When Johnny Comes Home Again.”  Well, the truth is many Johnny’s didn’t come home. This article brought me to tears:

Iron Men Saved George Washington’s Army

It is a story that needs to be told.  Get some tissue.

Happy Fourth of July fellow citizens!
