Matthew 10:28

Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

A profile in courage…

PSALM 144:1

A song to the Lord Who Preserves and Prospers His People “Blessed be the LORD my rock, Who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for Battle

“This group of soldiers are 101st Airborne, 502nd PIR, Regimental HQ. during World War II. Dad is on the right with his helmet on. I believe this was taken in Normandy. He used to say, “this war could happen again and on US soil no less”.

I pray that he was wrong on that prediction…”

“Ive been trying to find Warren A. Scott, my best friend for the first few years of serving in the Army 84–86. We went to basic in Ft. McLellan, AL in 1984 and then to Red Stone Arsenal AL for school.” — David El Rayo #USA #Army #friendships #Military

“My husband, Eugene E. Johnson was in Vietnam 1965 — 1966.

He developed cancer from Agent Orange and passed away 3/8/2015. I got permission to put in the monument for Vietnam Veterans in Bay Pine VA Florida. Instead of staying silent, I wanted to thank the veterans, many of whom I cried with when I saw how sick they became.”

“As a Forward Observer, I was responsible for directing fire for close air support in situations using helicopters, and artillery.

I directed fire into places where the enemy was positioned, while I supported troops on the ground. A Forward observer team includes a person who carries the radio and a second person who calls in the coordinates for a fire mission.

The worst part for me was witnessing my fellow Soldiers die or suffer such horrific injuries in the jungle, many of whom were my friends. To this day, I can close my eyes and still see and hear cries of pain and fear from the men, as a result of their gruesome injuries, as they screamed, “Am I going to die?” and “Please, please save me, I do not want to die.”

WE HAD A DREAM OF WAR

Waking up to the pale morning sky,

We had a dream of war.

Many died and blood was drawn,

With an unsightly gore.

Our minds were numb,

But still we come,

Stealing the lives of men.

Yes we know it’s a sin,

But here we go again.

Wearing heavy combat costs,

Having sleepless nights,

Chasing fear and chasing loss,

Oh what an awful sight.

Our lives have become a battlefield,

Forever fighting for our lives,

Many heroes have passed,

Lost in this battle of strife.

We pray for strength and courage,

And hearts that will forgive.

For peace and understanding,

In a world for all to live.
