Today is Veterans Day and this morning as I wake up and sit here writing this blog – I change my Facebook picture to my team overseas! I think about how lucky I am to be alive. I also think about how so many of my brothers-in-arms are dealing with that ugly acronym and probably do not even realize it: PTSD. Then I think about all the blessings that God has given me in the past 5 years since I have returned back from the war in the desert.
The Lord has blessed me beyond belief! I have made it back from the sands of Persia without an outward scratch; I have a best friend who cares that can teach me and those hard lessons that I haven’t been able to completely come full circle with. I have been taught many hard lessons overseas, but the hardest lesson I have learned is the lesson that you can’t come home again. The biggest lesson that I have ever learned overseas is that God is good!
I want to take a moment now and announce Freedom System’s future! It feels that it was only yesterday that FreedomSystem.org took its life! God has put the future of this organization in our hands! Freedom System is proud to announce it is going through a major overhaul and is ready to announce that it will be rebuilding and rebranding! While keeping the same overall conservative feel!
We are also excited to announce that we are going to start a scholarship fund to go to the children of those that have lost parents in Iraq or Afghanistan!
Don’t forget to thank your Veteran on this Veteran’s Day!
Thank you and until next time:
