Group Urges Honoring Veterans with Prayer

Ad Feedback

November 11 is the day set aside each year to honor America's war veterans. The day takes on greater significance each year, as America loses more than 800 World War II veterans each day.

In addition, young soldiers have remained on the battlefield in Afghanistan for 12 years now, the longest war in American history.

That's why one group wants to start a new tradition this Veterans Day. Cheri Lomonte, from Austin, Texas, believes America's military has done so much for the country that every American needs to acknowledge them this Veterans Day, on Sunday.

Lomonte, the founder of Frontline Faith, is urging every American to honor veterans with a moment or prayer and silence.

"At noon time, wherever you are, to be in silence just for a moment, and to show gratitude and thanksgiving," Lomonte said.

Lomonte said most of our military think we've forgotten them.

"So instead of forgetting them, not only are we thinking about them, but we're going to be praying for them," she said.

Lomonte's Frontline Faith is working year-round for service members who they've found starving for spiritual sustenance. The ministry has put 30,000 MP3 players in troops' hands, players full of spiritual food.

"It's over seven hours of religious content," Lomonte said.

She added that the military chaplains are thankful that the MP3 players are bringing God to the soldiers, and the soldiers to God.

The MP3 players cost about $24 each, so Frontline Faith said they need more support from from fellow Americans to fill the spiritual need for the hundreds of thousands of troops who want them.
