Focusing on the blessing we call freedom
The freedom Awards Gala is an event set aside to honor individuals who have been willing to defend the freedoms we enjoy, making the ultimate sacrifice if required, as well as those who are willing to do whatever is necessary to secure their own access to this precious gift we so often take for granted. The 2014 Freedom Award recipients include those who make their stand to protect our freedom in faraway lands and in our homes and neighborhoods. Also selected this year are two who, even at a young age, understood that achieving freedom of the soul and freedom from fear are worth the risk of imprisonment. These four join an impressive list of previous recipients who have each demonstrated a unique contribution to the cause of the freedoms guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution and the cherished American values of God, family, freedom, and country. Meet the recipients below.
