Scripts Howard Foundation Wire Article by Melvin Felix:

Obamas and Bidens announce campaign to honor and support military families

2 Timothy 4:7-8 "I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness,
which the Lord the Righteous Judge will award to me on
that day - and not only to me, but also to all who have
longed for his appearing."

Jesse made the ultimate sacrifice in a land far away.”

My quiet Storm, a servant leader, a man of integrity,
a man of honor, an officer and a gentleman. 
Jesse was and remains our family’s Hero. 
He selflessly and faithfully served our country
with courage,valor and distinction.
God used him to inspire and impact the lives
of many over the course of his 29 years.
Our family will never forget his love,
devotion, generosity, tenacity, sacrifice,
loyalty and sense of humor.
Jesse finished the race that was set for him by God.


Run Til I Finish

I have decided Determined I'm committed,
That I'll run no matter the cost.
I'm going to finish my race
I'm going to take my proper place
In the winning circle.

Oh I'll run this race
Nestled safely in amazing grace.
I've made up my mind
And I don't have much time,
But I'll run, Til I Finish

Lyrics from Smokie Norful Song

Remember all our fallen heroes. Never let their service be forgotten.
Pray for our wounded heroes, the brave men and women who are still
on the battlefield, and for their families.
