Happy Veterans Day, and thank you to all who have served our country, no matter what your branch!
In the Gospel of John, Jesus said, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13, KJV*). This verse truly speaks about our military service members. By some estimations, over 41 million Americans have served our country during wartime, and there are some 23 million U.S. military veterans living today. If you haven't done so, make sure you thank a vet for his or her service.
“The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.”
― G.K. Chesterton
*I don't usually quote from the King James Version, but the poetic quality of this translation is fitting with this verse.
