We have lost so many people over the years in the effort to preserve or secure freedom not only for ourselves, but others as well.
Take a moment today to remember those who died.
Pray for the families, friends, and fellow soldiers who are wrestling with this grief today. Don’t forget the cost of freedom.
While you remember the deaths of the service members, remember also the sacrifice Christ made in order to grant you eternal freedom. Without Jesus, our past, present, future, and eternity would be bleak indeed.
