We Pray for the families of those who have been wounded and Killed in Action. Please comfort and bless them in their time of pain and mourning.
During the War on Terror, the following young men from Kern County have lost their lives in service to their country. At this time of conflict, it is important that we remember them, and continue to uphold their families in prayer. We share their grief and pray that the Lord will comfort them.
For the sacrifice of these fine young men, we will be eternally grateful. We will forever honor their memory.
Thanks to The Bakersfield Californian for their help in compiling this list.
