This is a very difficult time for so many. My heart and prayers go out to all those upon which these losses weigh most heavily.
To borrow some phraseology:
"It is the soldier, not the poet, who gives us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter, who gives us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who gives us freedom to protest. It is the soldier who serves beneath the flag, who salutes the flag and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the demonstrator the right to burn the flag."
In Remembrance of all 31 American servicemen killed in action on August 6, 2011 -- thank you for your Service... your Sacrifice...... and your Dedication to A Grateful Nation.
May God Bless And Keep You; Be with your families in this time of sorrow, and my God continue to bless and watch over all of our servicemen and women who will wake up tomorrow morning, and continue willingly to Serve In Harm's Way and to lay down their lives if necessary so that the United States of America, its Freedoms, It's Liberties and the Lives of its Citizens can Remain Safe Another Day.
