If you don't stand behind our troops, please feel free to stand in front of them. I wonder how many Americans stand behind our troops. I think more people than the media gives credit to. I have many relatives that have and are fighting for our freedom. Lets get back to square one people and pray for our troops and keep "IN GOD WE TRUST" And lets look at the good side of things.
"My first Posting on my new blog. I hope and pray it does well. God Bless each and everyone of you who take the time to stop by and say hello and to leave a comment".
