Join me in prayer or a drink.
If you don't pray raise up a black and tan and just say quiettiger. I can taste that beer from here.
I am getting a lot more road duty and have been facing a lot of indirect fire lately. Please pray that I get around this place without getting hurt.
Please pray for the soldiers who are above all things our brothers and sisters. They have no color. They have no party affiliation. They are what we should be focused on being which is just Americans. The recent extension comes down hard because it didn't come from the NCO chain of command but the press.
Please pray for America. We are so blessed and yet in our selfishness, anger, and arrogance we don't really appreciate fully what we have or have any real sense of joy. People are angry about the smallest issues. We lack love, patience and the simplest of consideration. Integrity has a price on it.
I'm not expecting any good from this if nothing else getting called out for sentimentality or the smallest issue that a person can fault me for. Fine. You are perfect and I am still flawed. I know my flaws and failings. This isn't about my issues. This is about where are we going as a country.
Pray for America. Pray for peace. Don't pray for violence. Don't pray for vengeance. Don't pray for one thing over another. Just pray for peace.
A couple of years from now after you are done poking fun at my request remember that I did ask.
