Veterans Day 2013: Today we pause to remember the sacrifices made by those brave men and women who have served and are serving in the world’s military to protect freedom around the globe. Let us pray for peace across all lands, healing for the hurting, and protection for our protectors.
The two ladies who bring you this blog are very proud of our brother John who just completed his final weekend drill with the Missouri National Guard after 27 years of active service.
His career began when he was a 17-year-old senior in high school. As a citizen soldier, he participated in monthly drills, summer camps and deployments within the state during times of natural disasters.
John was called to active duty twice and served 18-month tours of duty in Afghanistan and Kosovo when his children were young. The photo on the left is his then 4-year-old daughter Jessi greeting him when he arrived on leave from Afghanistan.
The men and women who serve in National Guards and Reserves are the best-trained force in the world who serve when called and contribute to our society in their everyday lives in our communities. Thank you to all you serve in these branches of the military.
