To All Veterans on Veterans Day
Thank you for your service
On Veteran's Day this year, we ask you just take a moment and really just look at your loved ones who served in the armed forces. They helped to bring us freedom. These are just ordinary people who performed extraordinary acts everyday to ensure the freedom we enjoy as families, communities, churches....a nation. Look at those hands in a new appreciation. Many of those hands are fragile now but the person who was once a soldier stills lives inside.
With that thought, here are the hands of a few of our veterans:
- Mamie Tanner, 103 -first woman pilot, WWI Army Air Corp
- Ernest Grebe-1st Lieutenant Army-Vietnam
- Glen Taylor-Sargent in WWII, fought a the Battle of Iwo Jima
- Charles Nelms-Intelligence Officer, Airman First Class Peacetime
- James Glaymeyer-Seamen 1st Class in Navy during the Cuban Missile Crisis
"Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country’s cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause."
Happy Veteran's Day
Thank you for your service, dedication, and HEART!

“More than anything I have learned that we are all frail people, vulnerable and wounded; it is just that some of us are more clever at concealing it than others! And of course the great joke is that it is O.K. to be frail and wounded because that is the way the almighty transcendent God made people."
