Three Years Ago

U.S. Army Sgt. Keith Matthew "Matt" Maupin was captured in Iraq three years ago today. Please keep him in your prayers.

Please pray for his parents, Keith and Carolyn Maupin, who are beacons of hope and pillars of strength in our community.
The 2nd Annual Dinner and Dance Fundraiser --- Let Us Never Forget Scholarship Fundraiser will be held this evening.


Community Press

Yellow Ribbon Support Center - go here for details on the dinner/dance and to also see what the Maupin's and our community are doing to keep hope alive.

And just in case anyone has forgotten, Matt was captured by terrorists.

Matt Maupin has been promoted in absentia three times, most recently to Staff Sergeant.

I cannot, no matter how hard I try, get my mind around just how brave Matt and his parents must be. When I see that photo of him sitting in front of his captors. . when I see his mother giving an angelic smile in a photo. . amazing. Heroes in a legendary sense. You read about people like this. . but when you try to imagine actually being in their shoes. Impossible. These people are of the very foundation of our country. Bearing our burdens. Weight I cannot imagine. God bless them.
