Update from the Naples, Italy Sangha

On June 4th, 2011 Richard Wren, husband of SWZC member Laura Hitchcock, was recognized for his work on the military action in Libya and personally thanked by the Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden. Rich spent five weeks aboard the US and NATO Joint Force Command flagship, the USS Mt. Whitney planning and executing the military action against Moammar Gadhafi and his rebel forces. The events in Libya were, and still are tragic, as is any war or military action however, it makes a difference to the world to have intelligent, compassionate individuals making contributions and that involve violence against other human beings. Having individuals who are against violence and war helping to make decisions on how military actions will be carried out is truly a shift in military protocol; one that I believe preserves the lives of as many individuals on both “sides” of a conflict as possible. I am thankful to my husband, Rich for his service and personal commitment to making the world a safer place in the most compassionate way possible.
