Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
"All gave some, some gave all". Great quote and so true. Everyone is touched by war. I grew up hearing stories of WWI and WWII. My great Uncle Leslie, who lived to be nearly 103, served during WWI. My Grand Father, on my Mom's side of the family, that I never met. He fought in WWI and died due effects of mustard gas. My Mom and Dad told stories of living through WWII. My Dad was a farmer and wanted to serve but was not permitted to join because they needed farmers on the home front. My Mom talked many times of friends that she lost in WWII. I remember her saying there were very few young men left in her town. She talked of how everyone's lives changed. Today my son-in-law Josh is a marine and has been deployed several times. Our friend Josh Z. is also a Marine and is deployed in Japan. Thank you "all" for your service to our country, to our families, and to God who loves you.
