A Soldier's Prayer
In Honor of Veterans' Day 2010....
If you know a veteran, say thank you for serving to preserve our freedoms! That is why I have published this hub! Thank you to all who have served!
Remember Our Troops
I just received a chain email asking to pass along pictures of our brave men and women in uniform, in honor of the supreme sacrifice many of them have made for us all. I didn't want to send this out by email to all my friends, because I suspect many do not read forwarded emails. However, the spirit of the request is noble, and so I have decided to publish these pictures on this hub, and at the bottom there is a prayer we can all say. Underneath the pictures, I've updated this page to include random thoughts the images inspire as I view them. If anyone has any thoughts of their own they would like to add, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Let us pray...
Prayer chain for our Military.... Don't break it!
Please send this on after a short prayer. Prayer for our soldiers Don't break it!
'Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. Amen.'
Prayer Request: When you receive this, please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our troops around the world.
There is nothing attached. Just send this to people in your address book. Do not let it stop with you. Of all the gifts you could give a Marine, Soldier, Sailor, Airman, & others deployed in harm's way, prayer is the ver y best one.
GOD BLESS YOU FOR PASSING IT ON!
UPDATE! Help A Soldier Through Soldier's Angels!
I have an uncle who is a Vietnam Veteran himself. He just alerted me to an organization that is trying to help soldiers who are still serving in Iraq. The name of the organization is Soldier's Angels. According to my uncle, at present they have 138 soldiers who are awaiting "adoption."
"This organization recruits people to "Adopt a Soldier" to collect items and send packages to one or more of our men. Items included are socks, shaving soap (in tubes no sprays) combs, toothbrushes, sun tan lotion (which are hard to get in Iraq) and the like. Also requested are snacks such as beef jerkey, peanuts, etc. or anything that is sealed so that it will not soil," my uncle reported.
