Many young peoples' lives are being changed as they continue to serve us in Afghanistan. They are our true heroes. Let us pray that all who come home will be greeted by the support that they deserve.
There have been five more U.S. casualties in Afghanistan since Jan. 27, as reported by the Defense Department. The total of fallen heroes in Iraq and Afghanistan stands at 6,368 as of Feb. 10.
Each of these five people represents another person missing from five groups of friends and five families. May we continue to keep all of those who mourn in our prayers and conversations.
