Why I serve

Left to right: Jessica, Alex, Jennifer, Luke & Seth

So they don't have be afraid every time they step out of the house.

So we can send them to school without fear of a car bomb going off.

So they have an opportunity to grow up and pursue whatever dream they choose.

I serve so that, hopefully, they won't have to.

Regardless of how you feel about our presence in Iraq we have taken the fight to their backyard, which is keeping them out of ours.

If you would like to know more about these handsome kids you can read more about them in a previous post.

This photo was taken in the great state of Texas. In the background is the clock tower of my alma mater, THE University of Texas at Austin.

This is one of those times when the words "thank you" just aren't enough.

To you, your family and those that accompany you overseas, God bless...
