On this veteran's day, pray for our soldiers specifically in Fallujah, who are fighting with the kind of uncommon valor and selflessness that is so remarkably common in our armed forces. It is because of their courage and sacrifice that we can, in the words of Winston Churchill, "sleep the sleep of the saved and thankful."
