Although i myself have never served , i proudly SUPPORT and PRAY for all of the men and women who serve in our armed sevices . may GOD bless YOU , and keep you safe . p.s. . Remember, FREEDOM IS NOT FREE . . Sincerily, jeff (san antonio,texas)
I wanted to tell you just how
much I appreciate what you are doing for our country. Please do not ever think
you are not valued and the service you provide is not something a vast majority
of Americans are not thankful for. I am a 21 year old college student and I
thank God for what you have chosen to do for all of us.
Know that America is truly grateful
and respects you highly for your service to Our Country. The rallies being held
In Support of the Troops are inspiring. Here in San Antonio 8000 people turned
out on an unusually rainy and cold day. The rally was postponed 45 minutes to
allow the people that were still flowing in to join everyone already there.
Two photos are included, I wish you could see them all. I know that I can speak
for each person at the rally and say, "God Bless you and Godspeed."
Thank you for being there,
Preston, Tom, Pat, Pete, Donna and the remaining 7995 people
To all of you that are so courageously
defending our great nation,
I write for myself, Judy Byrom and my husband, Rev. Albert L. Byrom, Sr. . And for the many that attend Southside Baptist Church. We continually lift you up in prayer, and we display a Patriotic Board with pictures and addresses of family members. Know that you are greatly appreciated.
A short story, for your encouragement. Proverbs 28:1 "The Righteous are as bold as a lion." Rosa Parks, a committed Christian and the mother of the civil rights movement, was arrested in 1955 for refusing to give up her seat on the bus to a white man. Boycotts and bloodshed followed until the Supreme Court finally ruled racial segregation unconstitutional. In Quiet Strength Rosa writes: "Knowing what must be done does away with fear. When I sat down on the bus that day, I'd no idea history was being made - I was only thinking of getting home. But I had made up my mind. After many years of being a victim of the mistreatment my people suffered, not giving up my seat - and whatever I had to face afterwards - wasn't important. I didn't feel any fear...I felt the Lord would give me the strength to endure whatever I had to face. It was time for someone to stand up - or in my case, sit down." God's Word says, "The righteous are bold as a lion." Even when you don't feel very brave, always remember, courage isn't the absence of fear - it's the mastery of it! Psalms 27:14 says "Wait on the Lord...and He shall strengthen thine heart." When your cause is righteous and you commit it to God, He'll give you the boldness you need to act. Count on it!
We Love You All.

To the men and women of the U.S.
armed forces who help preserve our freedoms, I can only say "Thank You"
- and that you all are in my thoughts and prayers each day. Those who support
you are many and are proud of you! We may not be as vocal as the so-called "entertainers"
who are flaunting their views, but we are here and we are behind you. We are
a nation that has a history of helping the less fortunate and that makes me
proud. As a descendant of early settlers to this country (late 1600's) who fled
persecution in the Palatines, and of women and men who fought as Patriots, I
pray for your safety and your strength. May God bless you!
Revis & Tommy Leonard- Uvalde, Texas
To All Our Troops,
As a former member of the US Navy during the Vietnam War - I Salute All of You!! Your efforts and Sacrifices are Greatly Appreciated!!
Anyone in this country who does not feel the same - does not deserve the Freedoms for which you are all fighting for!!
We are Praying that God Bless and Be With Each of You to keep you Safe and that You All Return Home Safe And Soon!

Brad, I am only one of millions
who know that the cost of freedom is high. We live in a country with the right
to express ourselves, walk freely in the streets, and pursue the careers of
our choice. The assurance and protection of these freedoms is enforced by our
Commander and Chief and the great people serving in our military system.
The Collation, principally made-up of our U.S. of A. military personnel, is effectively removing a regime of terror; our troops are insuring our freedoms! May God Bless them, our President, and our administration.
I was fortunate to have lunch with Senator Dole this past week in Seguin. I stated to him that any of we ex-servicemen would bear arms, at whatever age we may be, to protect our freedoms should we be called upon. We would even protect the freedoms of the left wing liberals who are protesting our troops, the war, and our President (they don't deserve it, but we will protect freedoms). Senator Dole stated he has heard this same response so many times.
You run a good program and I enjoy listening to you whenever possible. Thank You from Victoria, Texas!
Just wanted to send my support
to our great military especially those in combat in Iraq. When I see pictures
of young kids smiling and waving to troops as they drive, I get this feeling
that you guys are risking your lives for a great cause not only for the people
of Iraq but also for the future of our young people. I have a brother in the
Navy and everyday I say a prayer for him and all of our troops stateside and
abroad, and a special word for those in combat. You are doing all of us proud,
don't worry about the liberal left who protest against the war, they are so
out of touch of reality that they do not realize you are fighting for their
right to protest. Keep up the good work and complete your mission, so you can
get home soon! I also have to say that my prayers go out to the family and friends
of all those who lost their loved ones in combat.
