As We Move Through Our Day...


Marines from 3rd Battalion, 11th Marines and soldiers from Afghan national army rush back to their vehicles to pick up supplies from an air drop, July 5, outside Fire Base Fiddler Green. A KC-130 dropped 12 pallets of fuel, food and water to support the personnel at the fire base. Photo by 1st Lt. Kurt Stahl

As you move through your day; whether it be that you are off to work or school; perhaps you have the day off and will run errands or take care of yard work; perhaps today is the day to go to the grocery store.... As you move through your day, taking the simple pleasures like a glass of water from the tap or a run to the grocery store to pick up eggs or bread for granted... As you live your life; enjoying luxuries...

PLEASE remember there is a soldier... a soldier in a faraway land, a soldier defending our freedoms...a soldier waiting for an air drop to receive his food and water.

24/7/365 there are arimen in the skys, sailors on and under the sea, grunts on the ground somewhere in the world keeping us safe.

People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

So true!

Now the next question I would have is...just how much of that stuff burned in?

Another good reminder. We are so lucky because others sacrifice. We need to keep praying.
