Thanksgiving: Have an Attitude of Gratitude

An email from a friend . Please keep these Marines and their families in your thoughts and prayers . They gave all , we can surely give some .

“We are asking everyone to say a prayer for “Darkhorse” 3rd Battalion 5th Marines and their families. They are fighting it  out in Afghanistan & they have lost 9 marines in 4 days.

  IT WOULD BE NICE TO SEE the message spread if more could pass it  on. Nothing in the media about these guys because no one seems to  care:  *Justin Allen, 23, Brett Linley, 29, Matthew Weikert, 29, Justus Bartett, 27, Dave Santos, 21, Chase Stanley, 21 Jesse Reed, 26, Matthew Johnson, 21, Zachary  Fisher, 24, Brandon King, 23,  Christopher Goeke, 23, Sheldon Tate,  27 . All are Marines that gave their lives for YOU this week. Please Honor THEM by forwarding this.  I just did. ”

God bless them and their families .
