Remember our Fallen Heroes

Please remember those who died for our freedom and those who are still fighting. I would also like everyone to remember the forgotten part of the military and that is the wives and husbands of those fighting for us. They are the unsung heroes who keep things going while their spouses are off fighting.
I lost my first love to a war and today always bring heartache-it never goes away. He served our country and died a hero saving his platoon from further killings, but was never given the bronze star. Had he not been picking up claymores, he might still be alive today, because the sniper that shot him was killed by his platton and the gunfire set the platoon on their feet and saved them from being shot. His father received the bronze star for saving his platoon, being a captain in the US Army during WW11 and he has gone to meet his maker. May all our soldiers that died for our freedom rest in peace and Prayers for those that are fighting a war to keep terrorist out of our country. Many Blessings today to all the families of lost ones and for those fighting and their families. Amen.

I wish all our military men and women could read all the posts on blogs today, sugar. They'd have no doubt that the majority of Americans support them. Bless your heart.

Thank you for sharing your story. I am proud to be an American and thank God every day I was blessed to be born in the greatest country in the world. I appreciate every soldier and the sacrifices they (and the ones that love them) make.

Your Friend,

Thanks Connie and Deb. Even though I hate wars, I will support our troops and their families with all the prayers and love my heart can hold. It was a little sad passing the cemetary today and seeing all the flags flying on soldiers graves, especially my uncles, one of them dying in Germany at the age of 20 in WW11. Hugs,Pat
