Like many things in life, if you’ve not been there, you have no idea. In my experience the ones who come back from any combat zone and talk about it a lot have some type of agenda. The quiet ones are the ones who “been there, got the tee shirt” and don’t want to relive it.
Like prison, I learned a lot there…but don’t wanna go back.
From 1968-1969 I rode with the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment. I was not yet a follower of Christ, though had I been I still would have served. Prior to Nam I spent a couple years in Korea and a few months in Germany.
May we continue to pray for all the current military men and women in harms way; and thank those who have served.
Even if you are against war (in particular or general), do not disrespect the warrior.
