This weekend, can you do me a favor? In between the barbecues, the trips to the park, the get-togethers, the preparation for vacation, etc., please take a moment some time to:
pray for, and
the dedicated men and women in the past who have died in service of our great country; and all those today who put themselves on the front lines every day defending our great country and what it stands for. Because even with all our differences and disagreements, we would not be the country we are today without them.
