OIF anniversary

Posted by Richard on March 20, 2009

Today is the sixth anniversary of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Iraq hasn't been much in the news or on our minds lately, but Families United wants us to remember on this day:

It is a day to celebrate the bravery of our troops and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect this nation and expand freedom to the oppressed.  Our men and women in uniform have fought tirelessly to make Iraq a nation that is free, stable and an ally in the War on Terrorism. 
 
It is because of our military that Iraq is beginning to heal and reach out to the world in ways many never believed possible.  It is because of our military that Iraqis are able to live, work, improve their lives and participate in their government free from fear and tyranny.  Hundreds of thousands of our brave troops have helped create the potential for a free nation in the heart of the Middle East.  Many of them have been there two, three, and even four times. 
 
America’s Military families know the sacrifice and dedication that our troops make every day to protect our country.   They experience it in the pride of a homecoming and the absence felt by an empty chair at the dinner table.  This anniversary is a day to honor their courage, pray for the fallen and reflect on the millions of lives now lived better because of our military men and women
