Pray for the 3/5 Darkhorse Marines in Sangin, Afghanistan. I read today that 19 of these innocent Marines have been killed recently. God bless our troops and pray for them all, especially the 3/5.

1.) Pray for victory for the hard hit 3/5 Marines in Afghanistan. Link to update:

From the story:

Peto and his wife were high school sweethearts. They were married in a secret ceremony at the Clark County Courthouse in 2005, as he was preparing for his first deployment to Iraq, Dillmon said.

The couple had a formal ceremony at Mill Plain United Methodist Church after he returned in 2006.

Peto was awarded a second Purple Heart for the wounds that led to his death. He received his first for injuries suffered four years ago while he was serving in Iraq.

3.) Keep praying for the 3/5 Darkhorse Marines & tell others to also pray. This is the unit that last Wed. had 9 killed in last 4 days as of then. Today I read they now have had 19 killed total. And all our troops need prayers.

From the story:

“He was just one of the greatest guys I’ve ever known,” Weed said. Her brother took great interest in being an uncle to her 11-month-old son, Christian, she said

Donnelly was married Sept. 11. His wife, Linsey Becker Donnelly, was not available for comment.

The two were married at Yosemite National Park in California. Shortly after the wedding, his father said, Donnelly was deployed to Afghanistan.

“It was one of those things . . . the marriage was the right thing to do,” he said.

Donnelly said it was his son’s wish to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery. Services will be held there at 11 a.m. Dec. 14. A memorial service is being planned and is likely to be held at the U.S. Naval Academy chapel in Annapolis, his father said.

About her brother having died serving his country, Weed said, “I don’t think he would have had it any other way.”
