Divine Master, Lord of History and Provident Father of all
men, We beseech your protection in this hour of need.
Repair those lives shattered by human violence.Give
to our leaders the wisdom and prudence to steer our world
community to peace and prosperity.Step
into our history with your truth and your justice. Grant reconciliation to all bound by hatred and despair. Be
our Father and Consoler forever.… Amen.
want you to close your eyes and picture in your mind the soldier at Valley
Forge, as he holds his musket in his bloody hands. He stands barefoot in the
snow, starved from lack of food, wounded from months of battle and emotionally
scarred from the eternity away from his family surrounded by nothing but death
and carnage of war. He stands tough, with fire in his eyes and victory on his
breath. He looks at us now in anger and disgust and tells us this...
gave you a birthright of freedom born in the Constitution and now your children
graduate too illiterate to read it. I fought in the snow barefoot to give
you the freedom to vote and you stay at home because it rains. I left my
family destitute to give you the freedom of speech and you remain silent
on critical issues, because it might be bad for business. I orphaned my children
to give you a government to serve you and it has stolen democracy from the
people. It's the soldier not the reporter who gives you the freedom of the
press. It's the soldier not the poet who gives you the freedom of speech.
It's the soldier not the campus organizer who allows you to demonstrate.
It's the soldier who salutes the flag, serves the flag, whose coffin is
draped with the flag that allows the protester to burn the flag!!!
hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless
them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our
time of need. Amen."

O Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light. PSALMS 18:28
Psalm 91 ~ Soldiers Psalm
He that dwelleth in the
secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I
he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
He shall cover
thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall
be thy shield and buckler.
Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth
by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction
that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at
thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou
behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the LORD, which
is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
For he shall
give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Thou shalt tread
upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under
Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set
him on high, because he hath known my name. He
shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will
deliver him, and honour him.
With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

proud warriors of Baker Company wanted to do something to pay tribute To our fallen
comrades. So since we are part of the only Marine Infantry Battalion left in Iraq
the one way that we could think of doing that is By taking a picture of Baker
Company saying the way we feel. It would be awesome if you could find away to
share this with our fellow countrymen. I was wondering if there was any way
to get this into your papers to let the world know that "WE HAVE NOT
FORGOTTEN" and are proud to serve our country." Semper Fi " 1stSgt
photo was forwarded from one of the last U.S. Marine companies in Iraq. They
would like to have it passed to as many people as possible, to let the folks back
home know that they remember why they're there and that they remember those who've
