132 Welcoming home our troops

A beautiful story about the chaplain who welcomes home our dead soldiers. Washington Post, July 4, 2004.
"Lord God, we stand humbly before these valiant Marines," he said in a recent service aboard the plane. "It is our deep and sacred honor to welcome them home once again. . . . Bless their fellow Marines with whom they served. Protect and guard them. May the bravery of these Marines strengthen our resolve in the difficult work of laying the foundation for peace in our time." Father Robert Cannon
