We Ask A Small Favor Today

There you will see  faces of  (as of this writing)  6,750 U.S. service members who have died  in OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM and OPERATION ENDURING FREEDOM.

These are OUR children. ALL OF OUR CHILDREN. Take a minute to reflect on that.

God Bless Them, Their Families, and Keep them always in our Hearts and Memories, For the Great Sacrifices Made in The Name of Peace, Liberty, and Freedom.

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Major John McCrae, May 1915
