To the Editor:
The Field of Flags stands for the last week of the year in Wayne, N.J. There have been six more casualties in Afghanistan and Iraq this week, as reported by the Defense Department. The total of fallen heroes in Iraq and Afghanistan stands at 6,134 as of 11-18-2011.
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.
We also are reminded to give a big thanks to those who are now serving and who have served in the military. Happy Thanksgiving!
The Field of Flags Committee
