Soldier pics

These sixty-two pictures of soldiers were pointed out on a blog I read today. I think it is amazing that the pictures are all from this week. Monday through Thursday.

They show some of the problems the soldiers are having to deal with now, like losing sleep to sandstorms, having battalion level meetings outside in the heat, exercising on the blacktop in full sun… They also show the soldiers relaxing, hanging out, eating, working…

I think they are a good tool to use to remember that these folks are human beings doing their jobs. They're also a good tool to help you think of things to pray for. I knew to pray about the heat and related problems, but hadn't thought about sand problems. (Should have. I'm from West Texas.)
