In Remembrance this Memorial Day

For the 30 heroes below who died in May, 2011 in Operation Enduring Freedom.  I pray:

O God, by whose mercy the faithful departed find rest, look kindly on your departed veterans who gave their lives in the service of their country. Grant that through the passion, death, and resurrection of your Son they may share in the joy of your heavenly kingdom and rejoice in you with your saints forever.  We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Please take a moment to read each name and reflect on their sacrifice. Keep their families in your prayers.
