“Who kept the faith and fought the fight; the glory theirs, the duty ours.”
~ Wallace Bruce
What do you think about on Veteran’s Day? Is it just another day off or do you truly make something special of it? Here are a couple of statistics to ponder. Only about 0.75 percent of the U.S. population ever served in the military (including active-duty, Reserve, and Guard) and only 7 percent of the U.S. population today are veterans. Many have served before us and many will serve after us. Those still wearing the uniform today, like all others before, will one day hang it up. What will be left? Hopefully and prayerfully, our families and wonderful friendships made through the years, and most importantly the freedoms we enjoy will still be intact. Until then, the duty is ours to carry on — we must “fight the good fight of the faith” (1 Timothy 6:12) in our lives.
Blessings from Above …
