Atlanta- This afternoon at the Capital, Governor Sonny Perdue lead the state in a moment of silence and then a solemn time of prayer for Georgia's fallen soldiers and their loved ones.
Sixteen Georgia soldiers, with the 48th Brigade, have been killed since the unit deployed to Iraq in June. A 17th soldier was killed in Kuwait.
At 1:00PM, the Governor called on Georgians to remember the ultimate sacrifice those soldiers paid for freedom and to pray for the military men and women still serving our country.
"We'll be observing two minutes of silence for our fallen heroes and for all those who continue to serve this great nation," said Governor Sonny Perdue.
"We gather here today in a spirit of remembrance and intercession as well," Perdue said. "We pray for our fallen heroes, our protectors and defenders. The men and women of Georgia that have made that ultimate sacrifice for duty and honor, and country."
"They like their father, grandfathers and great-grandfathers before them, were and always will be the true warriors," said one military man.
Governor Perdue also asked all Georgians to comfort and support the families of the fallen soldiers and the families who's loved on continues to serve in the military.
Albany will hold a city-wide prayer vigil for the 48th Guardsmen and their families Sunday at four at First United Methodist Church.
