Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
How many people will lay down their life for a friend? How many people will lay down their life for the God they claim to believe in? How many will even lay down their life for their own rights? Far to many will sacrifice their friends, their god and their own personal rights and freedom for a few more days of life in this world.
Our cemeteries are filled with those who laid down their lives; veterans are walking the streets who have laid their lives on the line, and there are men and women on active duty who puts their life in face of death daily. This they do for God, country, friends, family and strangers . . . willing to fight . . .
willing to die.
Once a soldier, always a soldier; it's in the blood and it never leaves; the discharge only puts us out of the military service. Most of us melts back into
civilian life, but we continue to think like a soldier, to act like a soldier weather we want to or not, it's embedded inside us.
There is a brother hood among all branches of the military; family, friends and
strangers all with one thing in common . . . WE SERVED.
From the heart and mind of a veteran comes the books: 'A Gun and the Cross' and 'God, Soldiers and Rednecks', I speak for myself and my brothers in arms, both past and present; these are our stories, our thoughts, our fears, our memories.
