Memorial Santa Barbara & Santa Monica

The pictures are taken at the beach in Santa Barbara and Santa Monica. There is a veterans group that started putting a cross and candle for every death in Iraq and Afghanistan. The amazing thing is that they only do it on the weekends.

They put up this graveyard and take it down every weekend. Guys sleep in the sand next to it and keep watch over it at night so nobody messes with it. Every cross has the name, rank and D.O.B. and D.O.D. on it.

Very moving, very powerful. So many young volunteers. So many 30 to 40 year olds as well. Amazing!

Please share this after a short prayer.

Please, let us pray...

Prayer:

'Heavenly Father, hold our troops in Your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in this our time of need. These things I humbly ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, Amen.'
