    I would like to give gratitude to our soldiers, who serve for our country, leaving their families behind! I can not Thank You enough for your courageous acts. I give you my upmost respect and stand beside you with prayer, that Jesus will protect you and keep you out of harms way until your safe return home. I stand beside the ones you must leave, the little ones my prayers are with your families also that they will be safe here in America. AMEN!
