Leadership and the Christian Officer

[…]The commander and subordinates are face-to-face with them. The commander has close personal contact with subordinates. Physical courage has a great impact. The problems are relatively simple, covering small areas, few people and few types of situations. At higher levels it is quite different. While there are fewer opportunities to display personal physical courage, moral courage is a constant requirement. It is impossible to spend the desired time with subordinates, hence the commander must seek other ways to influence them. The problems are greater and more complex. The commander must look further into the future and into the unknown. Much […]

Share this spiritual gift with your teen

[…]Good kids, clean cut, wholesome, helpful, and cheerful. They are all hanging out, exchanging contact information, taking departure pictures. I will miss this place. A few quiet moments near the spring to thank God for this time. Praise You for allowing us to be here, to know You better…to share. Telling Rick thanks. Words fall short.

Six Generations: 2

[…]in low voices how they should handle the enemy force. A typical tactic for this kind of contact was to pull back a safe distance and call in artillery, helicopter gunships, and jets to unload their ordnance on the unsuspecting enemy.

Another possibility was a frontal assault, achieving shock action and hopefully a quick, decisive victory, but a very risky venture with high probability of casualties. A third course of action involved an aggressive attack on their flank, thereby gaining some […]

Soldiers of Faith: Washington

[…]firmness at Valley Forge paid off. His character impressed all who came in contact with him. To the distinguished character of a Patriot, he exhorted his men, “it should be our highest glory to add the distinguished character of a Christian.” That he was able to pass on this virtue and character is evident by the lack of desertions, willingness of his men to drill under strict Prussian discipline, and the comments of his soldiers during this period. “Our attention is now drawn to one point,” a soldier reported in the Pennsylvania Packet, “the enemy grows weaker every day, and […]
