A Marine Deploys to Afghanistan
Please allow me to introduce a young Marine, by the name of Zach.
This courageous young man deployed to Afghanistan about two weeks ago. His tour should last for nine months. I've been in touch with his mom, offering support to her and the family. She has not heard from her son yet.
Zach graduated from High School with my son, John. Once upon a time, these two guys were Boy Scouts together... It seems like only yesterday.
Please pray for Zach to remain safe and strong.
Please pray for his Unit, that they will be reunited with their families one day soon.
Please pray for Zach's parents and his brother, along with all the families going through difficult days, weeks and months ahead.
If you wish to write Zach a letter or send him a package, drop me an e-mail and I will provide you with his address.
May Almighty God Bless all of our Airman, Soldiers, Sailors and Marines.
