Father, in PSALMS 91 we are told, “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart”. In John 11:25 Jesus said: “Whoever lives and believes in me shall never die”.

It is very difficult to define what a Patriot is, where they come from, how the grew into the person they became. All we know for sure is they all loved their country and have sacrificed more then anyone will even know or understand. The best we can hope for is to have met them, listened to their stories, and found the slightest hint into who they really were. Each one of them has a story and all of the stories are different. All we know for sure is God has blessed us with their presence and we are all the better for them.

God Bless this PATRIOT.
