The Price of Freedom

Meet Landon Carpenter...

(click image to enlarge)
Landon's father, Marine Lance Corporal Andrew Carpenter of Columbia, Tennessee, gave his life defending our country in Afghanistan last year, a month before his son was born.

Landon's mother Crissie wants his story to be known, and allowed this photo to be posted online. I saw it on Facebook with a caption explaining the story behind the photo, and a request to "Never forget the price of freedom."

God Bless Our Troops and Their Families.
