Support our Troops

Here is a picture of my cousin Matt, he serves in the Army and is currently deployed to Iraq. This picture was posted on the Army's site. He's the one on the left. I'm proud of him for serving our country, but I hate that he is there and why our idiot president has these young men and women there. Please pray with me for his safe return home. Matt's mom and my cousin, Betsy, forwarded this link to us last week, I had been wanting to send it out to everyone, and today being 9/11 it just seemed appropriate to put it in my blog.
