In Honor of all Servicemen and Servicewomen

Past, Present, Future

Donors who make charitable contributions will receive an acknowledgement from Cost of Freedom, Inc. and may be eligible for a tax deduction on their income tax return.

In 2005, in the midst of the 'War on Terror,' young soldiers were returning to our country with wounds both obvious and hidden. They understood the meaning of  honor, courage and commitment. Still others were not returning at all ... all gave some; some gave all." -Cost of Freedom


Members of the USNA Class of '72 formed the Cost of Freedom in 2005. For the past 14 years we have been honoring these heroes over a 3 day weekend and growing our Cost of Freedom family.  


It is our goal to share the meaning of values such as honor, courage, commitment, respect, sacrifice and valor to the community and to generations to come so that we might not forget the sacrfices of our Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, and Airmen and always be reminded that freedom is not free. 

Cost of Freedom received a $10,000 grant from MassMutual which it will allocate towards an expanded "Kindred Spirit" program with two objectives:


1. to help our servicemembers with "unmet needs" such as home remodification, car repairs, and child care that will assist them as they transition back to civilian life.


2. to honor and recognize the contributors of women in the military.
