Today, I want to stop and thank the men and women who serve faithfully in our Armed Services – your bravery, sacrifice, heroism, and courage are unparalleled.

Whether you are active military, in the reserve, or have faithfully served in the past, thank you for protecting our freedoms.

In a world that is full of so much heartache, we stop to thank you for standing in the gap when it is needed.

May the Lord protect, guide, and care for you. May the Lord go before your family who is left behind when you are deployed. Thank you for your service, and in some cases, thank you for paying the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.
