As Commander-in-Chief, I take pleasure in commending the reading of the Bible to all who serve in the armed forces of the United States. Throughout the centuries, men of many faiths and diverse origins have found in the Sacred Book words of wisdom, counsel, and inspiration. It is a fountain of strength, and now, as always, an aid in attaining the highest aspirations of the human soul.

FDR 1941

One of the things that has separated our military from others is our behavior in war and in peace.  that's not to say that there are never problems, but we deal with those problems and they are few.  why has our behavior been different?  we have good training, discipline, and we have a moral background based in judeo-christian values. 
when we hear about someone in our military behaving badly, killing civilians, or raping women, we are appalled and expect that the persons responsible will be punished.

what happens if we remove god from our military?  well, we may find out....

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

The military is being destroyed brick by brick.  I hope we can recover, but how?  When love of country and duty are laughed at and religion forbidden--as the poem says "the center cannot hold"

"the center cannot hold"

good choice.

This is only one thing.  Look at the senior leaders being replaced.  The ability of the commanders on the ground to make decisions.  The crap being taught in the academies.  one or two more cycles and they will have replaced all those who took an oath to the constitution, with those who have sworn to be PC.  we are well and truly screwed.


William Butler Yeats (1865-1939)

       THE SECOND COMING

    Turning and turning in the widening gyre
    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    Surely some revelation is at hand;
    Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
    The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
    When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
    Troubles my sight: a waste of desert sand;
    A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
    A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
    Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
    Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.

    The darkness drops again but now I know
    That twenty centuries of stony sleep
    Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
    And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
    Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?



Matthew Chapter 24
8
    All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9
    Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
10
    And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11
    And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12
    And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13
    But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14
    And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
