Prayer for Veterans

Thank you Lord, for all of our Veterans. May we honor them and learn from them as they tell us their life stories. They have battled for our freedom. They have considered the cost and chosen to serve a greater cause than themselves. Bless them Lord. Protect them with you Divine Protection. And heal any wounds that they may have received in body, mind, and spirit for their sacrifice has been great, in Jesus Name.

It is the Soldier

It is the soldier, not the reporter, Who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the soldier, not the poet, Who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the soldier, not the organizer, Who gave us the freedom to demonstrate

It is the soldier, Who salutes the flag, Who serves beneath the flag.

And whose coffin is draped by the flag, Who allows the protester to burn the flag.”

~Father Dennis Edward O’Brien, USMC
