The Field of Flags stands in Wayne, N.J. There have been two more U.S. casualties in Afghanistan and Iraq this week as reported by the Defense Department. The total of fallen heroes in Iraq and Afghanistan stands at 6,308 as of Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
May this letter serve to remind us all to remember all who have served and put themselves in harm's way for us. May we all lift up in prayer the families and friends whose lives have forever been changed by the death of each of these soldiers.
Thanks to New Martinsville School students and staff for honoring all veterans with your special and patriotic program.
Bill Stuart and the Field of Flags Committee
