Letter: Prayers for vets of all kinds

To the Editor:

As I celebrate Veteran’s Day, three veterans come to my mind: My father, mother, and brother.

Dad was Navy, served 4 years. He represents the many military veterans we hold dear. Mom was a veteran of AA, and served 20 years in sobriety. She was a 12-step veteran. The 12-step veterans respect anonymity, but should be honored as well. They have made a new life, in spirit.

They serve in all our community and daily living. My brother is a dual veteran. First, by serving in the Navy four years, now by serving Christ with his service. Priests, pastors, and ministers of the Gospel are on the front lines everyday, giving of themselves and serving God, His will in our lives of free will.

The battle is against darkness, evil, and the temptations we face daily. We all
are veterans of the spiritual warfare in our living and working. So we appreciate ALL veterans, military, and spiritual. Take time to pray on Veteran’s Day. Prayers of thanksgiving for all vets.
