Words can never really capture the nature and horror of the combat of war. No, it was William Sherman, General for the Union Army of the Civil War who said it best:

“It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, more vengeance, more desolation. War is hell.”

A few soldiers gain fame for their deeds but the names of most who have defended our country and nation,  can only be found on markers in graveyards scattered, not only across our country, but around the world. To those courageous men and women who have stood on the wall, may the Lord be with you. May peace be upon you and may the light of freedom guide your life through its darkest times.

May all of us, when faced in defense of liberty,  have the courage of a great american general who, while defending freedom:

“…tore his coat; and he took a piece of it, and he wrote upon it—’IN MEMORY OF OUR GOD, OUR RELIGION, AND FREEDOM, AND OUR PEACE, OUR WIVES, AND OUR CHILDREN.’ He then fastened it upon the end of a pole…and he took the pole, which had on the end thereof his torn coat, (and he called it ‘The Title of Liberty”),  and he bowed himself and he prayed mightily unto God for the blessings of liberty to rest upon his brethren, so long as there should a band of Christians remaining to possess the land.” (Ref., BOM, page 323)

May the ‘Title of Liberty’ fly over this great country forever, and may the blessings of heaven fall upon all those who are defenders thereof!
