What One Can Do July 4th Tribute Fort Mercer

From the founding of the USA and throughout the years, citizens and immigrants have fought for freedom for themselves, their neighbors, and for strangers abroad in other lands.

"Thank you" to those who serve in many various ways, your energies and sacrifices are not unnoticed.  With minds and hearts enjoined they persevere in dangerous and frightening situations.  Their families and friends give support that they uniquely create.

The Declaration of Independence, the Liberty Bell, and the Betsy Ross flag are all well known pieces of the nation's history.  There are so many people and places in the War for Independence which go without notice.

These times, especially, with the amount of technology, there are still so many unnamed men and women, skirmishes, battles, triumphs, and tragedies which are not even given a second of airtime, or internet space.  That will probably never change.  There is more news happening than can be managed or handled efficiently, fairly, and without prejudice.  That's just the way it is, despite the efforts to share knowledge, there will always be a lack of knowledge and attitude of not wanting or needing to know. 

This placque describes one of those moments in time which changed fates for all those involved and for the fight for independence in 1777.  One person at a time can make a difference, no matter the side you are on.                                                                                                          
Tributes to our service men and women! 
Honor, Safety, Return Home Soon...
