Operation Just Cause - Adopt a POW/MIA
 

 Please take the time to read this article written about one mans experience when confronting the great wall and the name of his uncle and namesake on that wall.  It is worth you time I promise. The Wall by Rev. Gordon M Johnson II

"A BATTLE PRAYER"
 Young Warriors; Should fate find you on the battlefield, May your cause be a  just one. May your courage not falter. May you show mercy to your enemies.    May your efforts bring the blessings of peace. May you be triumphant and   earn victory. May your sacrifice be always appreciated. May you endure the conflict unharmed. Should you be harmed, May your wounds heal. Should  you perish in the struggle, May God embrace you and find a Place for you in his Kingdom.
