Thank goodness for Saturdays because they allow me to catch-up on reading. This statement was from June 21st, but better late then never.
Here is a statement from John Edwards on the deployment of New Hampshire National Guard troops to Iraq:
"As these brave National Guard troops from New Hampshire depart for Iraq, Elizabeth and I keep them, their families and their loved ones in our thoughts and prayers.
"We all join together as Americans to honor and thank the brave men and women who selflessly volunteer to serve and protect our nation. We pray for their safety and look forward to them returning home to the hero's welcome they deserve."
