My heart is a little heavy today thinking of Army Private Jack Diener II, only 20 years old from Boyne City Michigan. This small town if full of love and life and lost this young man on 11/21/11. He was serving our country in Afghanistan.
Recently our local NBC news, Up North Live featured Alanson Michigan. This was the first place my husband and I called home when we were first married. The towns in our area are so small they almost connect together as one big area. Up North Live shared this quote, “The graduating class of 2009 had 12 graduates. I believe it was a six-to-six ratio of male to female. Out of the six males we had three enlist in the military,” said Nicholas Robbins. *The below video is from Up North Live.*
Please keep our military families both here and away in your prayers. Think of our boys and girls and pray for their safety.
