 HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL OUR TROOPS, VETERANS AND COMRADES OF AMERICAN LEGION KATY POST 164

 

Thanksgiving Prayer

Gracious Lord, 

Please watch over my brothers and sisters in arms, for they are the defenders of our country's freedom. 
Please watch over our families, for without them, we couldn't have endured. 
Please guide and bless our leaders. It is with them, that our future lies. 
Please bless this country, for that is the reason that we are here. 

We ask nothing for ourselves. We are here because we saw it as our duty and you blessed us to return. 
Our lives are in your hands and, for those who did come home to you, they came Home with Honor. 
We ask no special favors. We will ask nothing for ourselves. 
We will stand tall, and have no need to apologize to anyone. 

You gave Your Son for mankind. We are giving and gave OUR lives for the country that we love. 
Life, Liberty, and The Pursuit of Happiness, are more than just words to us as troops and veterans. 
They are words that we live by. We will also give our lives for them. 
They are our Creed. 

As Americans observe this Thanksgiving Day, Lord please let them also observe the sacrifices that others are and have endured, for them. 

God, Bless America and may You Bless The United States Military. 
 

FROM: Commander Sheryll Jones

In 1962, President Kennedy, addressing the men and women of the Army's 1st Armored Division, quoted an aging etching found on the wall of a sentry box at Gibraltar. It says, "God and the soldier, all men adore In time of danger and not before. When the danger is passed and all things righted God is forgotten, and the soldier slighted."

Kennedy pledged, "This country does not forget God or the soldier. Upon both we now depend." (submitted by Wallace Klekar)
