I Salute You...

I guess each and everyone of us has someone in their lives who have served and/or are serving in the military. I have many. My brother is one, he served in Vietnam. He was in the Navy. He was on a munitions ship running artillery to other warships as they were being fired upon. I can only imagine what a harrowing experience that was for him. My uncle too was in the Navy. My grandmother had photos of him at Annapolis, the Naval Academy. My family is proud of our vets as we are proud of all the military personnel who risk their lives on a daily basis to protect us and our nation's freedom.

On this Veteran's day, and each and everyday, I ask in humble prayer, that God lead, guide and direct our soldiers who are in this instance, fighting for our freedom and that He will give them speed, accuracy, premonition from danger, a blanket of protection/safety, and all other valuable sensory tools they might need to win the battle against terrorism. May He see their safe return to America whole and free with their heads held high so they may receive the respect they deserve for defending our country against the enemy.

To the U.S. military, I salute you!!!!!!!
