We are asking everyone to say a prayer for “Darkhorse” 3rd Battalion 5th Marines and their families. They are fighting it out in Afghanistan and they have lost 12 Marines in 4 days!

IT WOULD BE NICE TO SEE the message spread if more people could pass it on. Nothing has been in the media about these guys because no one seems to care.

They are: Justin Allen, 23; Brett Linley, 29; Matthew Weikert, 29; Justus Bartett, 27; Dave Santos, 21; Chase Stanley, 21; Jesse Reed, 26; Matthew Johnson, 21; Zachary Fisher, 24; Brandon King, 23; Christopher Goeke, 23; Sheldon Tate, 27.

All are Marines who gave their lives for you this week!

Marine Verse To Navy Hymn

“Eternal Father, grant, we pray,

To all Marines, both night and day,

The courage, honor, strength and skill,

Their land to serve, Thy law fulfill;

Be thou the Shield forevermore,

From ev’ry peril to the Corps,”
