Showing Love for America

We live in a remarkable nation. A place with freedom of speech. A place with freedom of the press. And a place with freedom to assemble. And some other freedoms too :)

We live in this land of liberty for two distinct reasons. The first is because of young men and women who have the certainty of spirit and personal courage to defend our nation in the military. And the second, and just as importantly, we are a strong nation because of our farmers, the people who put food on our table- day in and day out. No matter what.

Mike Lewis and Calvin Riggleman are two of the rare humans who have managed to serve our nation in both capacities, as leaders on the field of battle, and by growing a field full of food, or hemp- for their community.

Both men deeply love America, and show this in the way they live their lives.
