Support Our Troops: Quotations on Patriotism and Prayer
We live in challenging times - times that increasingly call upon the focus, intensity, and integrity of our armed forces. These are the men and women who selflessly protect what the rest of us hold most dear. A key to their success - as anyone from the newest recruit to the most battled-hardened veteran will attest - are the support and prayers of those at home. Support Our Troops represents both a timely and timeless collection of inspirational quotations that recognize the bravery, fortitude, and sacrifice of American troops the world over. These strong and supportive words honor our troops' commitment and thank them for their service on our behalf. The selections include quotes such as: "It is the love of country that has lighted and that keeps glowing the holy fire of patriotism." -J. Horace McFarland, and "Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigues of supporting it." -Thomas Paine. Support Our Troops delivers a special message of respect and support for service men and women and their families. A portion of the author's proceeds from the book will support Fisher House (www.fisherhouse.org).
