The Eisenhower Strike Group comes home…..

PMI1664 Emotions ran high as these family members and loved ones awaited the return of the Eisenhower to dock after being in active duty! One particular Mom (Angela) is a good friend of mine, she too, is a nurse. There wasn’t a day that went by that we saw her son’s picture embossed on a pin attached to her scrub top, blouse regardless of what she was wearing. A true testament of a mother’s love. You can hear the anticipation in their voices, often breaking, attempting to hold back the tears of joy! I say God Bless these young men and women who were off serving our great country!
I also ask you to remember those who were less fortunate and whose family members were not on that pier that day for their child had not returned in the same manner, please take time to remember them in prayer.

“Sure I am this day we are masters of our fate, that the task which has been set before us is not above our strength; that its pangs and toils are not beyond our endurance. As long as we have faith in our own cause and an unconquerable will to win, victory will not be denied us.”
– Winston Churchill
