Lord Jesus, Taps,,,******************************
I lost friends in the Viet Nam war. I was the only person in my unit who was not sent over there, due in part to my M.O.S. which I will not discuss.
However, ALL of them died. This is very sobering for me, as anyone can imagine.
"NO KING, BUT KING JESUS". MEMORIAL DAY SERVICES OFFICIATED BY THE PATRIOT CHAPLAIN/PASTOR WELL ATTENDED.
Like some of you I lost boyhood friends and those I served with in Nam .
All of us mourn some that we knew and they were all Patriots . Most now are called hero's but I differ in that regard . It may be that I know hero's that have done extraordinary things and have received medals for their deeds .
I'm not trying to degrade any because I know what it is to be on the other end of a barrel as some of you no doubt have . It's a feeling like no other and the first time for me I froze up solid and it felt like an hour but in reality it was just seconds .For me every thing stopped at that moment .
To honor these that we have lost is very important and to honor them even more is to get our boys and girls home in a war that we shouldn't be in . Get them out of the 150 bases we inhabit to protect us here at home and then take no prisoners for those that attack us .
They lose their lives for nothing but the war mongers , the people that get rich from these actions .
I've always felt I was a Patriot but more so now that I'm older , but not much wiser until the last few years . I'm involved in politics at the grass roots and study most days in the way of correcting the injustice's we've allowed to happen by "Silent Assent" . You , me , have allowed all this to happen because of "Apathy and Cognitive Dissonance" and many still don't know who it is that governs this country of ours .We cannot change DC without changing local first and that's a "FACT" !
We cannot blame our officials that we have allowed to ruin our lives , our country . We must put the blame squarely on our own shoulders ! !
Having said that , today should be a day of prayer for these brave souls .
