    Let us never forget those who were willing to stand face to face with adversity NOT for selfish reasons but for future generations. To them we owe a gratitude that cannot be measured. And I thank those who participate in this event for their honoring the lives and memories of those who would step where few would dare tread. Freedom DID not and DOES not come free... it must be guarded at all times. May the recognition of your bravery and dedication to honor and duty NEVER be forgotten.
    I will PROUDLY stand for you and with your family, as you did for me and mine... I did not know you then... but I know your kind and PROUDLY so.

    In honor the service of:
    ALL who have honorably served this nation in uniform, as military and/or first responder teams, and their families

    Then Jesus said to the disciples, "...and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one; for I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished..."

    AFTER ACTION REPORT: I had 8 PGR members at this mission. This was a very moving and honorable mission dedicated to those who made the ultimate sacrifice as well as their recognition of active troops and veterans. Kudos to Calvary Baptist Church.
