Earlier this year a best friend of mine lost his life on the job in Baghdad. Once a soldier in the Air Force years ago, he returned to his roots to support his military brothers in Baghdad. He was killed horribly and tragically during his line of work. He leaves behind his grieving son, mother, and sister.
As we begin to go to about our holiday relaxing, cooking, and eating, I would like to request from all of us to pray for the soldiers (and their anxious and at times grieving families) that have stood in the gap for our freedom and our comfort.
