Commonwealth Journal Wednesday, November 18, 2009 Somerset, Kentucky A3 Deaths Lucy Richards Ralph Sapp Margaret Stanley Commonwealth Journal Ward Correll giving away $30 of free gas to military personnel Local businessman Ward Correll understands the price of freedom — and who is paying it. "We can all do what we do in life because of the men and women in the military who fight for our freedom," Correll said. "Freedom is expensive ... not only monetarily, but in human life. These boys and girls pay in blood. "I love them and appreciate what they do for us," Correll added. "When they return home, I want them to know that they're loved. I want them to know how happy we are to have them back safely." So to give a little something back to our brave military personnel, Correll has authorized $30 worth of Cumberland Lake Shell gas per man and woman actively serving in the Armed Forces. Correll says it's just a small token for people who give so much for our country. "I see these boys and girls who really aren't getting the attention they deserve from our own Commander- In-Chief ... it scares me to death," Correll said. "The price they pay is extraordinary." Active servicemen and servicewomen can collect their free $30 gas certificate at the offices of Cumberland Lake Shell at 150 Railroad Drive. "I expect we'll have a lot of servicemen and servicewomen who will take advantage of it," Correll said. "And that's great. I just want to do something for them." Local business- man Ward Correll wants to show appreciation to service-men and women through free fuel. Ward Correll would like the Commander- in-Chief to give the Troops everything they need to win. If not, bring them home. We need to give the Troops respect and love.
