2021 President's Message​​

Cost of Freedom has many exciting updates and some great news to share. First, we are delighted to announce that COF Board Member, Gretchen Evans, was inducted into the US Veteran Hall of Fame. It was an honor to attend the inauguration ceremony held on October 30, 2021 to see Gretchen stand alongside other men and women who exemplify great character and service.

We want to extend our sincerest appreciation and gratitude to MASSMUTUAL for awarding Cost of Freedom a $25,000 Community Service Award. We are honored to be the 2021 recipient of this grant. It will allow us to expand our mission to Honor, Encourage and Support veterans returning from combat.

Our holiday program is underway again, where we “adopt and encourage” veteran families in partnership with VA Medical Centers throughout the country.

And finally, we are absolutely thrilled that our Cost of Freedom family will be together again this year as we gear up for Army-Navy Weekend December 10th-12th.

We thank you for your continued support and as always, we thank our veterans for their service and sacrifice.

With gratitude,

Our Board of Directors
