What freedom means to me... Curtis South

 

Joe Westbury

Curtis South was recently commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Marine Corps. He is one of the youngest and newest members of Task Force Patriot, and is awaiting his orders for oversees service to his country.

“Freedom is a state of mind that every person must individually come to accept. It is a state consisting of safety, pride, opportunity, and the appreciation of those who have provided it for you.

“We have secured a foothold on this land through years of war and the sacrifice of millions of American lives. In so doing, we have proven that we will never be overrun or allow any group of people to ruin what we have worked so hard to achieve.

“If an individual does net feel safe, or does not have the pride of the privilege to be called an American, they are truly missing out on the greatest thing on earth which can be provided for him. They are missing out on freedom."
