    Prayers for my cousin - Wounded in combat

    My cousin was in Afghanistan on a supply convoy when they were hit with an RPG. He was hit with shrapnel in the neck, arms and legs. He was the least wounded of the men he was with and after a brief firefight he drove his self and wounded soldiers back to base. They were still able to kick some butt even after they sustained their injuries. He was awarded the purple heart and bronze star. He is currently at home in Maine recovering from his wounds.

    Please send your prayers for a speedy recovery! Thank you.

    You got it. I lost a Nephew, serving with the 10th Mountain Division, over there.

    Prayers sent and God Speed for a quick and complete recovery.

    I had a nephew flying Apache helicopters in A-stan a couple years ago. Hazardous flying in the high altitude mountains. We were all glad he made it home unscathed.

    I pray for all our troops deployed in harms way so far from home.

    Thanks to your nephew for his brave service!

    Prayers for a speedy recovery. God Bless Him and ALL our troops that serve and those that are in harm's way...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
