As many of you are aware, we have a group of brave soldiers in Afghanistan who have been combat testing our slings.
Today, we are in mourning after receiving the sad news that one of the members of those soldiers' organization has fallen. The identity of the soldier remains as an undetermined Cavalry Troop. What we can say is that he was near Kandahar, Afghanistan. Should we receive more information, we will update this page with it.
We offer this prayer and ask that you include this brave brother in your prayers, too.
Today we honor a soldier, who has fallen in battle, having laid down his life for our country. His service complete, with honor intact, You called him home; his sacrifice, too humbling for words, save these offered in prayer:
Most loving God, please bless him forever in Your eternal peace. Let the sounds of strife, cries of battle and all his wounds of war, be calmed for all eternity in Your loving and endless grace.
Let this warrior at last find rest and may we, who are left behind, forever hold dear his spirit, and honor his commitment and dedication.
God, please send him our love and assure him that we will never forget his dedicated service and the ultimate sacrifice he made.
Thank You. Amen.
