“On behalf of the City of Lincoln, I am proud to express our strong support for the courageous men and women who serve in America’s military – the most capable in the world. We applaud their bold and brave commitment to winning the war on terrorism and making our country more secure.
“Our thoughts turn as well to the loved ones waiting at home for our troops to come home from their mission abroad. As “Operation Iraqi Freedom” unfolds, our prayers are for a swift resolution of the conflict and the safe return of our troops.
