    As most of you know, My stepson and Boc member, Pvt. David Studdard was deployed to Iraq last night around 10:00 p.m. With him in mind and him having a child on the way, it is him and every other soldier that i thought about as i read the following poem.

    With tears in my eyes I say thank you for the wonderful poem, and thank you to all of our men and women who are so proudly protecting us. May God keep them safe and bring them home soon.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours.

    That was beautiful, Newton. Prayers and thoughts go out to all our military men and women who sacrifice selflessly everyday of the year for the freedoms we enjoy and take for granted. They are truly some brave and special people. Thank you for sharing that poem with us all.
