THE UNITED STATES VETERAN
It is the VETERAN, not the preacher,
It is the VETERAN, not the reporter,
It is the VETERAN, not the poet,
It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer,
It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer,
It is the VETERAN, not the politician,
It is the VETERAN,
It is the veteran,
ETERNAL REST GRANT THEM O LORD, AND LET PERPETUAL LIGHT SHINE UPON THEM.
I don't know if you saw this in the news but it really impressed me. Funny, our US Senate / House took 2 days off as they couldn't work because of the expected storm.
On the ABC evening news, it was reported tonight that, because of the dangers from Hurricane Isabelle approaching Washington DC, the military members assigned the duty of guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier were given permission to suspend the assignment.
They respectfully declined the offer, "No way, Sir!"
Soaked to the skin, marching in the pelting rain of a tropical storm, they said that guarding the Tomb was not just an assignment, it was the highest honor that can be afforded to a serviceperson.
The tomb has been patrolled continuously, 24/7, since 1930.
We can be very proud of our young men and women in the service no matter where they serve.
God Bless them ... 2jesus
If you have a good story please send it 2Jesus.
