Once again Memorial Day approaches. Service men and women are vital to efforts and actions to benefit global interests. Appreciation is abundant for the bountiful work and sacrifices made by the scores of folks who perform for the well being and protection of people worldwide.
The armed services are full of brave, dedicated and honorable soldiers and officers. Privates up to the levels of generals perform admirably with diligent commitment to their duties. There are specialists and elite force personnel who contribute considerably to the missions that need to be accomplished.
Salutes galore extend to the men and women who show up, on the regular, for the good of we the people. They come from varied backgrounds, cultures and religions. Despite their differences, they perform in unison in the armed services. Bonds develop and some friendships become lifelong engagements. Marriage happens, also, among the military ranks. Yes, love connections indeed manifest in the midst.
The children of service parenting often benefit from travel advantages and sometimes live abroad with prolonged exposures to foreign cultures. Such experiences can aid in the personal and business development of youth. Widely traveling and living in foreign environments provides levels of advantages that often prove highly beneficial.
Salutes extend to the veterans, too, who diligently served and then retired from active duties. It saddens to be aware of the many homeless veterans. I wish that more will be done to aid in their circumstances. Hope continues for better to become reality for those veterans in such situations.
The Lord, God Almighty is indeed the Most High Commander in Chief. High and jubilant praises for such glorious comfort and assurance.
Psalm 18:32 – KJV
It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.
Psalm 23:4 – KJV
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy road and thy staff they comfort me.
