Veterans Day

In 1921, an unknown World War I American soldier was buried in Arlington National Cemetery. This site, on a hillside overlooking the Potomac River and the city of Washington D.C., became the focal point of reverence for America’s veterans.Years later, realizing that peace was equally preserved by veterans of WW II and Korea, Congress was requested to make this day an occasion to honor those who have served America in all wars.

In 1954 President Eisenhower signed a bill proclaiming November 11 as Veterans Day. On this special day we want to recognize the men and women in our military who defend the freedoms that you and I enjoy every day — The freedom to move freely about our country, the freedom to elect our governing officials, and especially the freedom to worship as we feel led. All of these privileges are bought with the price of human sacrifice and courage. We say a very special thank you to all who have served and to those who are serving today!

We also recognize the supreme sacrifice that was given by Jesus Christ our Savior as He died on the cross that we also could have freedom. The freedom from sin and the hope of eternity were purchased by His death on calvary. [Isa 53:4-6 KJV] 4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.]

Our prayer is that God will continue to bless the United States of America with men and women who are willing to make the sacrifices to keep us free. Also that He will lead us into the spiritual freedom that was purchased by Jesus so we can be a nation that honors Him. May the blessings of the one and only true God rest upon us.

Keep Looking Up!
