Thank you to the Ford House for offering a free tour to the Veterans. My husband Capt. Glenn R. Brown USNJAG Ret. and I enjoyed a beautiful day at the Ford Estate. We started with a tour and ended the afternoon strolling the beautiful grounds. It was nice to reflect and remember all of the men and women who currently serve in the armed services and those who have served, and those who made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure that we have the freedoms that we enjoy every day. Thank you to the Ford foundation.
