24 February 2009 Please keep their families in your hearts and prayers, and please remember that many others are still there in the war. With all of our economic troubles, it's easy to focus inward and forget about our people in uniform. If you only knew how much the people in uniform enjoy a simple postcard, you'd probably stop on your way home today and pick one up and address it to "Any Soldier" in Iraq, or "Any Soldier" in Afghanistan.
We may have a lot of problems at home -- and we do -- but our brothers and sisters are out there for us tonight. We lost eight just today. Four soldiers were killed in Iraq, and four in Afghanistan.
Four fallen in Northern Iraq.
Four fallen in Southern Afghanistan.
