Have you ever found yourself wondering if you do enough? Are you living up to your full potential? Is there more you could be doing? Have you missed an opportunity to do good today? Have you been so consumed by your own current circumstances that you are oblivious to what is going on in the lives of those around you? Well, I found myself asking some of those very questions recently.
Throughout the course of one of my days this week, besides work and home, I found myself in the University of Kentucky Emergency Room, the UK Hospital Cafeteria, near the UK Children’s
Today, we observe Veteran’s Day. Many people believe that Veteran’s Day is the day to honor military personnel who died in battle or from wounds obtained during combat. However, that day would actually be Memorial Day.
Veteran’s Day is honoring ALL American veterans, living and dead. It is a chance to say “THANK YOU” to our living veterans and to show them our appreciation. In 1954, President Eisenhower signed a bill proclaiming November 11 as Veteran’s Day. There are many Veteran Day ceremonies held across the U.S.
Military Missions would like to say “THANK YOU” to each and every Veteran and tell them how much their service is appreciated! If you happen to see a Veteran today, please take a minute to say those two simple words. You have no idea how much it will mean to them!
Please take a few minutes to browse the photos at www.military-missions.org/hero-wall-photos. All of these Heroes have sacrificed so much to fight for and protect our freedoms. Military Missions is honored to be able to share them with you.
To keep up with our heroes, be sure to follow our blog and be sure to “LIKE”our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/MilitaryMissionsInc
The bond and ability to form relationships is the most amazing thing humans are capable of. We can’t choose our parents or biological family, but we can choose those we love, care for, support and form unbreakable bonds with. Those folks we choose and that choose us are the ones that are closer than any blood tie could ever be. Examples of what I’m talking about can seen in foster or adoptive families, and of course the military. Bonds formed in extenuating, difficult, or battle situations are connections that are generally the strongest.
You are not alone in your struggles. Transition is hard and takes time, but you CAN DO IT!!! This is another battlefield and war you’re fighting. The key now is to learn how to fight it: what are your weapons, how do you use them, who/what is your supply & provision. Most importantly in this battle know that defeat is not an option & NEVER EVER give up or quit fighting!
I ran across this picture that a facebook friend and veteran Marine had posted. It was a visual image reminder that made me think of what God showed me about our combat veterans….
