AND HIS BROTHERS…
and his brothers survived the cut, they have endured training that so many others could not so that they could help so many others they are now over in another country for our country America, the United States of America, Amy and you have chosen to stand my him. Thank you, Amy for your strength and thank you Jason for you strength and thank you Michelle for your strength because we all must be strong and we all must support our troops we all must be together as a community is this not true, because Jason is helping our world so that he can support others in their need of truth for I do not know all that is true for them but I do know that he is doint all that he can and he has done more than I could ever do so who ever puts you down Amy puts me down and whoever puts Jason down puts me down and whoever puts his mission down means they all misunderstanding it all so we must try our best understand it all because his life is meaningful so try your best just like him because I know he is giving hope and is more than what meets the eye, he is life and his helping others to have a life_

During this holiday season, December 2011, a song for Amy and for Jason; a song from me for them expressing feelings come from me during the holidays when loved ones are away so for you both this is for you and so if this is not true o.k. if it is o.k. for tonight though know that this is for you both to know that in my heart I feel for you both for being so far apart, know to this that my thoughts, my prayers are too with you both so that knowing this, that others care for you both and your love will mean something some day.

Today’s Our War portrait is of Amy. Amy loves Jason.
Jason is leaving soon

He is a Marine in Our War. Jason is going to Afghanistan.

Amy has asked all who know Jason and who are related to Jason to write letters to Jason because she is creating a book for him to take with him on his deployment.

I asked Amy if I could draw a portrait of her instead of writing a letter to Jason.

This is Amy, a young woman who loves Jason, a Soldier in our war who is soon to deploy to Afghanistan.

Their story is similar to many military couples and unique and special.

I have had the great opportunity to get to know Amy during the course of being part of her thoughtful and special heartwarming gift that she is creating for her Jason. She is a remarkable young woman. I admire her very much.

My thoughts and prayers are with both her and Jason.

My tribute to Jason’s mother…

I pray for all of our Soldiers to come home soon to those who love them and to those who will love them and to our Soldiers to be strong, persevere and believe in themselves always, stay strong.
