4th of July

There is no holiday in Iraq; no weekends; no day off; no rest for the tired; while standing tall for freedom and peace – there is none for the Soldier… I could not be more proud of those I serve with: I have had several tell me “happy Independence Day” with not a single hint of sorrow or disappointment for missing the events at home. I know where they would rather be, but all understand where they need to be.

Tell them all they are not forgotten. I pray daily for all of you.
