General Douglas MacArthur, supreme commander of the Allied occupation of Japan considered himself, "a soldier of God as well as of the republic." He believed that democracy rises out of Christianity. He so much believed this that he pleaded with Christians to send 1,000 missionaries to Japan.
We owe our veterans so much. Without our soldiers there is no freedom to spread the Gospel, and without the Gospel there is no freedom for the soul.
During this Veterans Day Ceremony we will honor all veterans in attendance (Army, Air Force, Marines, Navy, Coast Guard, & Merchant Marines). Giving each a gift of gratitude for their service, and providing a free dinner for them and their families.
