For our armed forces and those who didn't get to come home!
« on: August 18, 2010, 08:26:47 PM »
Today the last of the 100,000 troops (out of 150,000) are being withdrawn from Iraq. Let's pray for them, their families, and for the friends/families of the 50,000 men & women who will remain in Iraq for peacekeeping and for the 4,415 U.S. troops that never get to come home...
Let's also pray for the troops of other nations also involved...

Lord have mercy!

(no political discussion please)

Lord, have mercy.

My thoughts are with the families of those who will never come home, especially those known to us and sadly  missed.

Lord, have mercy on those returning home alive, and may the memory of those who have fallen in battle be eternal!

What about the Iraqis that died?
May God grant them rest, as well.
