Out Of The Ordinary

Usually I would blog about the newest sports stories in the U.S.A. But not this blog. This blog is going to be about the United States Military who are working everyday of their lives to keep us safe in our homes. There are thousands of men and women who are out in the world everyday fighting for us. Some don't come home at all and leave entire families behind. I can't imagine the feeling of losing my father, mother, sister, brother, cousin, aunt, uncle, or any one of my friends. I don't know if I could move on from that thought. So I ask that everybody try to understand what these families must be going through even now with family overseas. This past Sunday in Goldsboro, North Carolina, the U.S. Air Force sent out the 335th Fighter Squadron to Afghanistan for 4 to 6 months. That's going to be some of the hardest months of their families' lives. So please keep them in your prayers as they go into the heart of the flames. (AP Photo/News-Argus, Greg Sousa)
