Well said Mr Walker. These are to me also "military assignments" as you put it, not necessarily wars to protect American freedom.

I also sometimes pray for someone on the "other side of the veil", as you do for Brock, though I am never quite sure whether it's alright to do. Sometimes you just want to bless people who have gone on before and it seems to me a loving thing to do. Any other thoughts on this?

Each Memorial Day I ponder the wisdom and legality of sending people out on undeclared foreign wars. I care for those who die, or are wounded, maimed or scarred, and their loved ones and the spirit of freedom that motivated many of them. "We" fought and lost a battle for freedom for the people in Vietnam, contained communism to North Korea in assisting the South Koreans, as well as being involved in the Middle East. Before that we were involved in assisting West Europeans in their battle against Nazi-ism which favored the spread of Communism in Eastern Europe and Asia
among other things.
