With the United States on the brink of going to war with Iraq, many local families with sons and daughters in the military are anxiously watching the news to see what happens next. All members of the military are currently on alert.

The Enterprise Christian Church has been collecting names, e-mail addresses and photographs of those in the armed services with local ties so church members can get in contact and send out prayers to those who could soon be on the front lines. Joyce Tautfest, who has been in charge of the project, has so far gathered 59 names, some with photos, and is looking for more.
