DECORATION DAY 2017

Most of us have a day off today because a few of them placed there lives in harms way to protect our freedom. John 15:13 says, “There is no greater love than than one who will lay their life down for there friends.” Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient and Prince look-a-like 1st Lieutenant John Robert Fox was directing artillery fire in the Italian town of Sommocolonia to stall a German advance. While Fox was directing fire, a large German force moved in on his position. Realizing that this force was a huge threat to his men, Fox called a final artillery strike—on himself. When his men eventually retook the position, Fox’s body was found next to approximately 100 dead German troops and a medal was placed neatly on his chest. This is one of many stories where people have subjected themselves to perilous danger for the benefit of others. This Decoration’s Day let’s be mindful and better yet prayerful for all the countless sacrifices those men and women in uniformed endured for the preservation of our peace and freedom. Thomas Jefferson said, “My God! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy! ”
