“Thanksgiving with Soldiers Overseas”

       It just so happened that I turned to CNN news this morning and caught this interview with U.S. Undersecretary of the Army Patrick J. Murphy with our American troops stationed in Camp Arifjan, Kuwait.  It is a military installation that holds all of the U.S. Armed Forces – Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines and Coast Guard- as well as troops from Australia, Romania, the United Kingdom and Poland that are also deployed there.

   On this Thanksgiving day, we always seem to forget those of our men and women serving overseas as if they do not exist. Except if you have family members or friends in the military would your mind glimpse into the thoughts of them and maybe reach out to share words, no one will ever remember we have servicemen and servicewomen across the globe still defending in a war that seems unending.  It is shows like CNN news that keeps them in our foresight and to remember them at some point of our day.

So as we gather with friends and/or family, let us please remember our soldiers overseas who couldn’t be with their respective families at the dinner table. Keep them in our Thanksgiving prayers.
