Sadly, the loss of life continues in ‘Operation Enduring Freedom.’ Since last Monday’s post, five (5) more have given their all. The silver lining to this cloud is that a charity has stepped up to pay the death benefits that the Government currently can’t do. Please feel free to share these Monday reminders to all you know, so they too, will remember that someone is paying for their freedom.
