Today, President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden will travel to Fort Bragg, North Carolina. They are taking part in early Thanksgiving celebrations and will be spending the day with service men and women and military families.

When speaking about the trip, the president said, “my wife Jill and I will be traveling to Fort Bragg in North Carolina for an early Thanksgiving with the troops and their military families. We’ll be able to show the nation’s gratitude for their service and sacrifice and welcome those coming home after 20 years in Afghanistan.”

The president then called on the nation to remember those who lost their lives and those who lost loved ones, “But, folks, as we give thanks… we also keep in our hearts those who we have lost, those who will have empty seats at their tables this year.” He added, “We pray for them to find the strength in sorrow and purpose in pain,” and concluded, “God bless you all. And may God protect our troops.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For safety for the president and first lady as they travel.
  • For God to bless the service men and women and military families during the Thanksgiving holiday.
  • For God to be glorified through the legacy and remembrance of those who sacrificed their lives in the service of their country.
