A Beautiful and Powerful Witness from a Veteran
Please overlook the goofy stuff at the beginning and end of this video, but you truly owe it to yourself to watch this video. I consider it a singular privilege and honor that I grew up in Pensacola, Florida, the “cradle of naval aviation.” Our congregation, Redeemer Lutheran Church, had many US military active duty personnel and their families in it and many veterans. I relished the opportunities I had to speak to and learn from veterans from WWII, Korea and Vietnam. I had a job on the air station and enjoyed enormously the wonderful times I had with everyone from the Captain of our Naval Air Rework Facility down to the enlisted men whom I spent some time while on photojournalist duties for the Public Affairs Office.
This video reminds me of so many fine men whom I got to know during my formative years and I thank God for them all.
Please take a moment to watch this.
