2 Timothy 2:4 

“No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.”

No one, unless they have been there, understands what it means to be a combat veteran. Robert E. Lee once said, “It is well that war is so terrible, otherwise we should grow too fond of it.” War is a terrible thing. We owe much to the men and women who have served our country. It means sacrifice, and if required, giving their life for their country. From those who died in the Revolution, to those who stormed the beaches of Normandy and Peleliu, to those who served in Desert Storm, we owe them much.

Whether someone has stormed the beaches of Normandy on D-Day or whether they are currently serving in the military, those individuals have sacrificed a part of themselves to serve you and their country. Veteran’s Day is a time when we give thanks to those who have served in the military, died in service to their country, or are currently serving. Men and women who serve in the military or veterans from past wars all across the nations should be thanked for their sacrifice.

No serviceman or woman who is honorable in their duties and serves for the benefit of their country and fellow man should be treated with disrespect. A Believer should pray for them. We should thank them.

To those who have given their full measure of devotion, we say thank you.

I want to ask a special, Lord, just now for these boys setting here in the uniform. Blessed be those boys, as they'll have to return back unto their ranks. But I pray, Lord, that on that day… We appreciate these uniforms they wear now. But may mother's prayer be answered: may they be dressed in the holiness and righteousness of Jesus Christ, at that day. The girls, and all together, Lord, that's what we want to be, the Christian soldiers, real strong faith. Guide us and direct us until that day, Lord, when we meet again.
