In Memorium

The Card family wishes to express its deepest appreciation to those who have risked and given their lives to protect our freedom. Servicepersons in blue, green and white have helped protect our democracy for 230 years, and those serving today are making the same sacrifices that their ancestors made when they won our freedom from oppression at the birth of this country.

Whether or not we agree with the justification for going to war in Iraq, those who are serving and dying there are doing it for the noblest of reasons.

No words can express our gratitude for what these soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines are doing for their country.

God bless you all, and we pray for your safe return.

update: Burnt Orange Report has published a list of the 234 native Texans who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan. Please take time today to reflect on the sacrifices they've made for us, and pray for comfort for their families and friends.
