    God bless ALL of the brave men and women who serve in the U.S military. Whether overseas or domestically, whether or not you believe in the current war effort or not, give an offer of prayer to these brave people who deserve respect and honor. The current war has its detractors, but the men and women who serve are still doing the RIGHT thing by protecting and serving.GOD bless them and keep them safe. Please do NOT forget the sacrifices of our military in wars and actions of the past. Many brave have given their life in battle to protect our way of living. War is horrible but yet, sometimes necessary because of the actions of many evil people. Whatever the agenda that puts our military in harms way,the brave who serve deserve HONOR!
