Those who Sacrifice for Us!!


Click on the picture to view it in its full size format

The picture was taken in 1918. It is a gift from our grandfathers, and it's a picture of 18,000 men preparing for war in a training camp at Camp Dodge in Iowa.

I have been looking at this picture, and I can't stop thinking about how many men and women have given their lives so that we might have our freedom.

We have soooooooooooooooooo much to be thankful for, and of course, this picture also reminds me of our Lord, who sacrificed His life so that we might have LIFE EVERLASTING!!!

This Christmas, try to think about the fact that God loved YOU so much that he was willing to give his ONE and ONLY son so that YOU might believe in HIM and not perish but have everlasting life.

Thanks for sharing such an awesome picture! This means so much to our family having been married to a military man for 26 years and him being deployed to Afghanistan for 15 months and then a year later having served in Iraq for one year. I thank God most every day for my husband's safe return. May God Bless ALL our troops and keep them safe.
