Moment of Silence


U.S. Army soldiers hold a moment of silence for a fellow soldier killed in action on March 6, 2010 in Kandahar, Afghanistan. The U.S. military is expected to launch a major offensive against Taliban insurgents in Kandahar in upcoming months, following its recent operation in Marja in neighboring Helmand province.

We do the same every day as we thank the Lord for our health and well-being, we pause and remember those who have made it possible for us to have the wonderful life we enjoy.

c-cs...so funny you mention the Ps 91 bandana...I wrapped one up for my son to take with him to Afghanistan on Wednesday. I make it a point to mail one to every soldier I send packages to overseas.
