Freedom is not free

Friday, October 27, 2006

Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5109 Ladies Auxiliary honored their "Gold Star Mother", Mrs. Donna Gilbert of Chapel Hill, with a luncheon and a bouquet of flowers during "Gold Star Mother's Week". A "Gold Star Mother" is one who has lost a son or daughter in the service of our country. Mrs. Gilbert lost her son in January 1970 while he was serving in Vietnam. In memory of that day, we are reminded that "Freedom is not free".
