Day 39, February 8

I am continually amazed by the men and women who protect our country, who serve us in ways we cannot possibly understand.  In doing some reading in preparation for writing my other blog (The Patriot Pages), I learned something about the formation of America's Navy and Marines.  What remarkable men.

Today, men and women serve our country, frequently foregoing opportunities for more lucrative employment.  They serve for a variety of reasons, but, most of all, because they love America.

This touches me, especially as some make the ultimate sacrifice, giving their lives to protect fellow servicemen and women, civilians, and American lives.  I honor them, today and everyday.

So, for today, I am grateful for the men and women who wear our country's uniforms.

  1. Sometimes they sacrifice their lives, sometimes their time and service, sometimes it's their health or body, and sometimes it's their mental well-being. I see this as Christ-like service. Greater love hath no man.
