  • Battling suicide with support, reinforcement, a plan

    Suicide has become a formidable enemy that is waging war against our Soldiers and their Families. This enemy has little regard for age, gender, race or socio-economic status. It destroys over 970,000 years of life annually, in the U.S., if its casualties had lived to the age of 75. Suicide now out numbers homicides in our country by twice the amount.

  • 14 years later, 9/11 remembered

  • Be encouraged, God loves us, will prove presence in our lives

    The Bible tells us that God loves us—each of us. His love is not comparable to human love, it is authentic, unconditional love that overwhelms us when God intervenes in our lives. God intervenes in all of our lives, beckoning us to realize He loves us and inviting us to receive his love into our lives. We never know when or where
    the intervention will come. Abraham was sitting at home. Moses was running from justice and was out in the wilderness. Isaiah was praying during a worship service. Peter was fishing. Matthew was at work. The woman caught in adultery was, well, caught in adultery and about to be stoned. God intervened and invited each of them to receive his love and his truth into their lives.

  • IT’S THE LAW - Five things might play role in appeal success, failure

    The evaluation reports officers and noncommissioned officers receive can be crucial to career progression, or even being permitted to stay in the Army. Because of the importance of these reports, Soldiers often want to know what they can do when they receive a negative report.

  • Are you in ‘hot pursuit’ of peace in Christ?

    When I was young I can remember vividly a popular television show I watched that involved a couple of “good old boys” driving a hot rod and being chased by the local police officer. The local police officer would see the hot rod speed by his cruiser and respond by exclaiming, “hot pursuit.”

  • KEEPING THE FAITH - Don’t hesitate to call upon God to meet your needs

    In Psalm 34:1-9, King David writes to us in a time of great difficulty
    to proclaim the greatness of his Lord and to exalt his name because the Lord is faithful to answer when sought out. “1 I
    will praise the LORD at all times. I will constantly speak his praises. 2 I
    will boast only in the LORD; let all who are helpless take heart. 3 Come, let us tell of the LORD’s greatness; let us exalt his name together. 4 I prayed to the LORD, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears. 5 Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces. 6 In my desperation I prayed, and the LORD listened; he saved me
    from all my troubles. 7 For the angel of the
    LORD is a guard; he
    surrounds and defends
    all who fear him. 8 Taste and see that the LORD
    is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him! 9 Fear the LORD, you his godly people, for those who fear him will have all they need.” (Psalm 34:1-9, New Living Translation)
