Eleven other of his soldiers died that night. Having been the commander of the mission, Roger felt responsible for every man who met his earthly end that night. Like a father to his sons, he loved and admired those soldiers. He was committed to protecting them. Now, he had let them down, he concluded, and years later, still struggled with the violent memory. I thank God for the brave men and women of our Armed Forces, past and present, and I salute the courage and gallantry of my friend, Roger Sherrard.

I have high esteem for the men in uniform-- in all the branches of the miniltary and in all the wars they fought. They ansered the call to duty to fight for freedom and protect the people.. I was a child during the WW11 ,and have experienced the ravages and horrors of war. I will never forget the sacrifices of the American soldierswho came to rescue us in the Philippines. I am here today because of them. Many of them gave the ultimate sacrifice so many innocent people and children,like me could be saved..
Our country was finally freed from the enemy's oppression. It was costly.!!
Because of that freedom, I am grateful too for the priveledge and honor to be a citizen of America. I love this country.
When my two sons decided to be in the military service --in the Navy, ,I was so thrilledbecause at least a part of me can return that appreciation to this country that helped me and my family to be free. God bless you.

Wow, great story Jim, had my tears rolling too. I have not had the honor of serving for this great country through the military but I lift them up in prayer because God has ordained them to partner with Him in being watchmen on the walss of our borders. I appreciate your ministry and pray for you as well, Thank you and may God continue to bless this country and your ministry.
