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.

    In the British Commonwealth, today is known most often as Remembrance Day (Poppy Day but also in the US & BC, “the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918 [WWI] — Armistice Day (called Veterans’ Day starting 1954 in the US)). I rather like the name, Remembrance Day. It brings to mind all those comrades I knew who gave that last full measure of devotion.

    Well done Chief Houston! Notice those gold hashmarks on his left sleeve. That is for 32 years of exemplary conduct in the Navy. Very rare that you see those.
