I will be attending at the 4th of July parade in Barton tomorrow afternoon and hope to see friends and constituents there! This holiday means much more to us than parades and barbecues. Our family knows that freedom isn’t free. The cost is the lives of young men and women who serve in our military everyday and keep us free from oppression and tyranny. It is a bittersweet day for us as we remember our Marine son, Jesse. He gladly served his country and was willing to give his life for freedom.
