This video was created by a WLA student, Zach Stowe, for Veteran's Day 2009. He writes:
This video was created by request for my school's (Winnebago Lutheran Academy) Veterans Day service. The song along with the pictures is "For Freedom" by Avalon. The soldier featured after the first verse is Marine LCpl Joshua Wege, a recent graduate from WLA. He recently was injured in a road-side bomb explosion in Afghanistan. The resulting injuries required that both of his legs be amputated below the knee. He is currently at Walter Reed and is being fitted for prothstetic legs. We all thank God for his safe return and speedy recovery. Josh is a perfect example that FREEDOM IS NOT FREE. So next time you see a veteran, say thank you for their service, each one helps preserve our liberties and we own them immense gratitude. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!
