KILLEEN — The vision and passion behind the “Price of Liberty” monument is that the price of freedom and liberty cannot be summed up by a monetary figure. When a soldier deploys, the entire family is affected, and those left behind fight a battle at home to fill a void their missing soldier leaves, while the soldier defends the great nation we live in. Whether the soldier returns or not, the entire family unit is forever changed.
A replica of the “Price of Liberty” monument was unveiled Saturday at H-E-B on Stan Schlueter in Killeen, to kick off Military Appreciation Day. H-E-B presented the Texas War Memorial Foundation a check for $50,000 to help fund the monument that will be installed on the grounds of the Texas State Capitol on December 2, 2017.
