We Were Soldiers

Ever see that movie? Buddy and I bought it years ago, but haven't watched it for a while. We're in between Netflix movies and I was in the mood for something different. There it was. I'd forgotten how harsh a portrayal it was. Imagine the reality. My heart went out as I tried to imagine myself in the shoes of a soldier doing his duty and then as a wife trying to hold it together while not knowing what was happening with her husband.
It made me thankful. We are so blessed to be in this nation, to have men and women willing to lay down their lives to ensure our future freedom. Reminds me of another One who willingly laid down His life. So much to remember, so much to honor.
Thank you!
