Welcome to the Freedom’s Light Dedication Wall. Below are dedications and inspiring messages intended to pay respect to those serving, have served as a first responder or for a person who just is inspired to give back. There is no real structure to this other than speaking from the heart.

I want to wish everyone a Great Happy Thanksgiving. It's a great time for family and friends to spend time together. I really enjoy that day for I was born on Thanksgiving Day. I do enjoy giving to others and Thanks to all of you soldiers who fought for our country. God Bless All of you!

Walked through Arlington Cemetary with my family over the 4th of July weekend. It was a much different experience than in 1992 and 1996. Julie and I walked through Section 60 and emotions pelted me like bricks. My heart was lost with the families of my friends: Ian Weikel, Matt August, Dennis Pintor, Gavin Reinke, Russ Rippatoe, and Tim Roarke. I could only think that God takes only the best like Enoch on an early arrival. Keep those families in your prayers both now and always!

Just a note of thanks and encouragement to all those that serve, their families back home and to all the brave first responders who selflessly help when tragedy strikes. You are the heart and soul of what makes us great. You are the guardian angels. Thank you for all that you do.
Richard OPrey 04 April 2011
Congratulations on your kindness and thoughtfulness. The leadership you displayed at Don Bosco camp appears evident to this day. I am proud to have known you and pleased that I have learned about this current activity. I am also relieved to read the name of Phil Esposito and his connection with this website. At the moment, I can only offer prayers of support, but I shall enter this into favorite places and perhaps at some future date I can do more materially.

Keep up the good work! I want to thank the family members of wounded/disabled vets.

Thank you to everyone who ensures peace behind the scenes. I know that the news doesn't highlight these people and the work they do often goes unnoticed. So here is my thank you for keeping the world running on a smooth even keel even as countries like North Korea are trying to provoke others.

Brothers I have personally known who have lost their lives while in the service of their Country.

Gone but not Forgotten.

May God bless and protect their wives, children, parents, and friends.

This is just a note to thank all those who serve to protect our freedom and in turn my children and family. I can't say that I fully understand all the sacrifices you make but I can say that I greatly appreciate the results. My family and I pray for you every night.

Thinking of my friend and coach, Dan Trant, who lost his life on Sept 11th while in one of the towers. My thoughts go out to his family, his 3 children, and to all of the first responders who attempted to reach him, but who also perished on that tragic day...

This site is dedicated to Phil Esposito, fellow West Point graduate and friend. Phil died in Iraq serving his country honorably on June 8, 2005. You continue to inspire after death. Be Thou At Peace!
