Our Son in Afghanistan
Our son in Afghanistan with his Stryker unit
Please don't forget our soliders and allies
My son and many other brave heroes left friends, family and loved ones to serve our country. Of course I think my son Alex is great, wonderful, a selfless hero who has sacrificed to serve something greater than himself - God and country.
Please don't forget these men and women. There are no women in this unit, but there are military women who have gone there and are definitely in harms way.
Please look at these images - my son and these soldiers represent sons, fathers, brothers and someone who is loved by someone else. Remember their sacrifice, remember what they are doing, don't let Congress or Mr. Obama forget them. Write or call your representatives and tell them you remember our military and our allies and this administration must do the RIGHT thing and support them, and support the Afghan people and show LEADERSHIP in the world by making decisions that are in the best interest of the country and our soldiers and airmen.
We're all busy - so if you can't consider contacting Washington or your representative, can you consider letting someone else know about these photos? Pass this on - place a link to your Facebook or at least tell someone else via email about these photos and ask them to take a moment from their day to pray or pay tribute to these wonderful men. May God bless our soldiers and may God bring back blessings to America!
