Ed Young welcomes Debbie Lee, Gold Star mother of the first fallen Navy SEAL in Iraq, Marc Alan Lee, for a special Memorial Day weekend experience at Fellowship Church.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Grapevine, TX, May 26, 2015-
Pastor Ed Young and Fellowship Church welcomed Gold Star Mother, and founder of Americas Mighty Warriors, Debbie Lee for a unique weekend service honoring the fallen men and women who have perished in the line of duty. In anticipation of Memorial Day, Debbie Lee spoke about the loss of her son, Navy SEAL Marc Alan Lee, and her desire to serve other families who have experienced similar losses.
In the words of Fellowship Church Senior Pastor Ed Young,
“Debbie Lee is an absolutely amazing patriot; and her son, Marc Lee, is a true American hero. To have her share her story and Marc’s story with our church not only reminded us of the cost of our freedom, but also challenged us all to continue to fight for the freedom we have and honor those who have gone before us. It is a true honor to be able to call her our friend.”
Debbie Lee founded America’s Mighty Warriors after her son Marc was the first Navy SEAL to be killed in Iraq on August 2, 2006. In Marc’s Last Letter Home, he asked for friends and family to “pass on the love and kindness and precious gift of human life.” Since then, America’s Mighty Warriors has been fighting to support our troops, the fallen and their families and to work with like-minded organizations to do the same.
Fellowship Church is honored to serve the families of fallen military heroes alongside America’s Mighty Warriors by providing an annual week-long retreat at Allaso Ranch Retreat and Resort Center.
Fellowship Church services are free and open to the entire community. They are also streamed live each weekend at FellowshipLive.com. Times and locations for Fellowship Church weekend experiences can be found on the church’s website, FellowshipChurch.com.
