Honoring Our Fallen Heroes: April 8 – April 14

So much is said in the media about celebrity deaths, while every day our country looses our military men and women fighting for our freedom with nothing reported. Each Monday, as we start our week, I will post a list of the men and women who died the previous week while protecting us from harm. Hopefully you will take a minute or two before you start your work week to read about these brave men and women and say a little prayer thanking them for their service and asking for comfort for their families.
