The U.S. announced today that it was closing the Embassy in Yemen because of Al Qaeda threats there. They will re-evaluate the closure tomorrow. Britain has taken similar measures.
This, and the recent attack on the CIA Forward Operating Base (FOB) in Afghanistan that killed eight Americans, highlights the dangers faced not just by our military but by those serving our country overseas in a civilian capacity. I hope that as you offer your support, encouragement and prayers for our troops and their families, you remember to do the same for those serving alongside them.
