Please take some time to say a prayer of thanks to all those brave men and women who have risked their lives and gone to protect this country. Also, say a prayer for those who are currently in places like Iraq; that they may come home safe to their families.
My childhood sweetheart is in the Navy so I'm always worried about how he's doing. Not just because he's my oldest friend (we've known each other since we were 5 years old; we're nearly 24) but because he has a wife and a mother who are patiently waiting for his safe arrival. I'm sure that's the case with a lot of other people.
Thank you for everything you've done for us, Veterans! May God Bless all of you!
