I notice them more in Airports either unloading from airplanes coming from the battle front or waiting to board airplanes going back to the battle front. They do not make much noise or draw much attention to themselves. The little pieces of metal or ribbons on their uniforms will tell you a lot about the solider and where he has been or what he has done. I have asked soldiers what the different medals and insignias represented and many times they were for great heroic deeds performed in combat. This week we will celebrate Veterans Day to honor and pay tribute to those that fought and died in battle for our country and our freedoms. May we remember and hold them in great honor. Some walk with a limp, others may be missing limbs, others in wheel chairs, and others may be terribly disfigured or physically impaired because of war wounds. I am reminded of someone else who was in a great battle many years ago. His battle field was a wooden cross on a hill where He suffered and died all alone. He has scars on His hands and feet where they drove the nails and a deep scar in His side where they drove the spear, (John 19:34, 20:27). It was Jesus Christ who was victorious and provided the one and only way our sins could be forgiven, (John 8:36, 10:10 1 Peter 2:24), See you in Church next Sunday.
