Purple Heart Day, August 7, 2013 - MOPH 177 assembled to pay respect. 


    Purple Heart Day at Port Hudson Cemetery
Today we come to pay our respect to all our brothers and sisters that have shed their blood in defense of our country. We are humbled by the fact that so many of our brothers and sisters paid the ultimate sacrifice and laid down their lives for freedom. And we are reminded if not for the grace of God our lives would have been cut short as well.
It is our responsibility to make sure our country realizes that there is a cost to war and much of that cost comes after the fighting is over. We did not ask to be wounded but we bear the scars quietly and with a sense of job well done.
So today we come to this place of rest to pay respect to all that have paid the price of freedom. Knowing that if we are not willing to sacrifice our time. The question is will a nation that 99% do not serve ever understand our commitment, our honor or our service.
Dear Lord we ask humbly for your blessing on the United States of America and all Combat Wounded Veterans.
