In Honor of Our Veterans

 

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. Joshua 1:9

I want to take the time to thank our brave men and women in the U.S. Military. It doesn’t matter what branch that they serve but it is important to remember that they are making the ultimate sacrifice to defend this nation and its people. Thank you.

Of course, I would like to also thank our veterans who are often time neglected and overlooked for their service to this country. Many have returned home with various issues that they are confronted with such as separation or loss of families, physical and emotional disability, jobless, scorned and neglected.

We the people owe a great debt to these brave men and women. One day a year seems to be inadequate.

If you have a family member, friend, neighbor, co-worker, church member or see a Veteran on the street, share your gratitude by letting him or her know how much they are appreciated for the sacrifice they have made for this country.

Lastly, I just happen to come across a radio interview with veteran Ed Reeves. His testimony of his faith in Christ will absolutely astonish you. The interview was conducted at issuesineducation.org in Memory of North Korean Veterans.

A news article in May 2000 the L.A. Times about Mr. Reeves stated in part…”Reeves was the only survivor of an attack by the Chinese on 600 U.S. Marines and soldiers at Chosin Reservoir, where December temperatures dropped to 35 degrees below zero. ”

His story will make you think again about the reality of Jesus Christ presence for those who believe in miracles.

In honor of our Veterans, I want to thank you for your dedication and service to defend our freedom.

This interview with veteran Ed Reeves at issues in eduction radio was conducted by Bob and Geri Boyd.   We want to express that the interview is not meant for children to hear because of the graphic nature of its contents (war atrocities)
