The Tip of the Spear

Today is Veterans Day. So, let’s face it. One of the main reasons you are able to sit at a computer in comfort and safety and read this blog is because some 19 or 20-year old had the courage to pick up a weapon and stand to post at some God-forsaken dirt pile on the other side of the world. He or she has chosen, on our behalf, to be the tip of the spear.

The older I get the more in awe I am of people in uniform. You may not agree with their missions at times but you have to respect the courage and dedication it takes to do their jobs.

If you are serving, have served, are going to serve, or you are a member of a veteran’s family, thank you.

Remember veterans and their families today with a moment of gratitude, and tonight remember them in your prayers.
