All troops be blessed
May HaShem Protect and Bless your son. My son is Spec. Op. in the US Army, I don't get to know what he's done or where he's been while deployed.. He swore to me that he will NEVER fire upon an Israeli or American citizen,and he's always true to his word!! Yes he gave me grey hairs growing up but he turned out fantastic. May our L-rd Protect and Bless all true Noble troops where ever they are!! May HaShem Bless Israel and bring peace to our Capital,Jerusalem!! Thank your son for me!!!
