Memorial Thoughts

Memorial thoughts 2018

Every year our country is at war I have Memorial thoughts 2018, whenever I hear of one or more of our soldiers have fallen in battle. I wonder about the time leading up to their death. So they join the military and go into basic training. Then they go into AIT (Advanced Individual Training). Then they may go to jump school of Special Ops. School, flight school. Then training with the unit they are attached to. This training could take up to 2 years.

Multiple Deployments

Deployments come, one after another to places no human should or could live in peace. The intense nerve-racking minutes, hours, days hell breaking loose all around you. You are committed to the fight, your battle buddies, your life, no way out! Unlike a bad dream that makes you sweat in the night, you just have to wake from the fight instead of die. 

Support from home

I wonder if those soldiers, airman, marines, sailors, in the lull of battle received the support from family, cards, letters, goodies from home. Something to make them feel that someone out there in the so-called “sane world” let them know that their fight is our fight. Their sacrifice is our sacrifice, and we wish to encourage them to fight on to victory. I have seen it at mail call, some don’t get as much as a letter, so sad.

We support them now

I pray if any of those men or women left it all on the battlefield. They were supported by someone from home that wanted to show we loved them and supported them while in battle. Thank God for all of you who have helped this cause. To:  Honor, Support, and Encourage our deployed troops in war zones around the world Never forgetting our homeless vets who sacrificed the best years of their lives defending the USA! We aim to support our troops with military care packages. If you know someone a relative or loved one please send us his or her APO address.  We will send a military care package to them post haste!
