During his famous Gettysburg Address, Abraham Lincoln said that America is a nation “conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.” He proceeded to question whether or not such a nation “can long endure.” The testing ground for such a nation, as he observed, was not in the halls of academia or before the high courts. Rather, Americans prove defend their nation’s existence on the field of battle.

Since the conception of America, the United States military has stood as a line of defense between the American people and those who would see this great land conquered. During World War 2, it was the American military that crumbled the fascist war machines of Europe. Even today in Iraq and Afghanistan, our troops are fighting to rid the world of the disease that is radical militant Islam.

Edmund Burke once said “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” The United States military is our nation’s promise to both ourselves and our neighbors that evil will never triumph.

The men and women who volunteer to stand downrange of enemy fire deserve our prayers.

Through the “Adopt our Troops” program, you can both register and adopt a specific member of America’s armed forces in prayer. What greater gift could you provide these troops than intercession on behalf of our omnipotent God?

Please take the time to adopt one of these soldiers and pray for them every day. If you know a specific member of the military, please register them. More than anything we could personally give them, our troops need our support through prayer.

IN THE NEWS: “Due to budgetary reductions, we are executing an historic drawdown of both our military and civilian personnel while in an unpredictable global security environment,” Army Deputy Chief of Staff for Personnel, Lt. Gen. Howard B. Bromberg said. The uncertain security environment makes it critical that force reductions are conducted carefully and responsibly and in a way that guarantees force quality and readiness are protected, he said. Bromberg was joined in his testimony by Navy Vice Adm. William F. Moran, chief of naval personnel and deputy chief of naval operations for manpower and education; Air Force Lt. Gen. Samuel D. Cox, deputy chief of staff for manpower, personnel and services; and Marine Corps Lt. Gen. Robert E. Milstead Jr., deputy commandant for manpower and reserve affairs. Bromberg noted that recruiting challenges will go hand in hand with a smaller military, as an increasing percentage of America’s youth become ineligible for military service. As the Army looks to the future, we must take advantage of all America’s diverse talents,” he said. “We’re expanding opportunities for women by opening up previously closed positions and career paths, while ensuring all soldiers can meet the required physical and professional standards.”
