Keep Our Military In Thanksgiving Prayers

(11/24/2004)

To my friends and colleagues,

I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.

I'd like to make a request of each of you ... As you enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with family or friends, please take a moment to stop and think of the military personnel serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. They put their lives on the line every day.

Regardless of your personal feelings concerning current military operations, I ask that you include these brave men and women in your thoughts and prayers on that day.

Please offer a prayer for the safety of my son-in-law, Warrant Officer Peter Basabe, serving with the US Marines 1st MEF in Fallujah, Iraq, and for his wife, my daughter Lt. Laurie Basabe, USN who is awaiting his return.

Thank you, and again, a Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Diane Ludwig

Warrant Officer Peter Basabe
