It is my honor to have you visit my blog. The photo above is my son, Ken, near his US Army Veteran father’s grave in Grinnell, Iowa.
All of us are temporarily stationed on earth, and during our stay here, let’s make a mark for future generations. Whether you are in the military or ever have been or never can be, the assignment is the same. We either follow orders from our supreme Commander…the one and only true God…or we defect.
I’ve been in the Lord’s army for over 50 years now. In that time, I’ve been up and down the ranks. My General sometimes takes me places I’d rather not go, but I know He is in control. For that, I am assured of my safety. One day, He will call me to glory, and on that day, I will salute the only one worthy of total submission and awe.
A while back, I wrote a historical novel based on WWII, Foxtrots and Foxholes. There is jazz and zinging bullets, but there are relationships on the human and divine levels, too. A Jewish young man leaves Germany to join the Allied Forces. He meets and falls in love with a British journalist. The history is accurate, not revised, as nearly as possible. What an era!
Whether you can relate war experiences or those conflicting life experiences, let me know how it goes with you. Remember, “Kilroy Was Here” offered encouragement to fellow comrades on all three fronts of the war. He was everywhere…just like the triune God.
