Great post, thanks for sharing and serving. Stay safe, what you're enduring is bringing you to a place of completion in God (James 1).



I am sorry that some don't understand and think anything you do could possibly be "in vain". But for men like you, we would have no freedom. As it is, we have sold out our freedom so we don't have to take responsibility for ourselves. What you do is not in vain unless we allow ourselves to truly separate God from our society and our government. But for you, we could face the same atrocities people in Iraq endured until just 2 years or so ago. Thank you, Shawn, for doing what you do. God bless you and your fellow soldiers, sailors, Marines, airmen and Coast Guardsmen who stand between us and our enemies. We are grateful for each one of you.


Thanks for sharing the pictures, Shawn.
May God continue to bless you in your work to secure freedom for people in other lands, a freedom that we here take for granted. Happy 4th of July!


Hey, it's July 4 here in the states, and I wanted to make sure I stopped by the blog to thank you and all vets for your service to our country. We appreciate the independence that we have, and know why we have it. So, thanks.


I just wanted to drop a line to let you know that as a Canadian I appreciate what you and those serving with you are doing not only for the country but for the world. This conflict is far bigger than most realize. Thank you for your sacrifice and your service. Godspeed.

You said: "Did you know we are the 9th largest military in the world, and 7 of the top 9 are not necessarily our friends? Just food for thought."

I wanted to know, as I am in the military, where did you get this information? It is very interesting. I think this puts things into perspective. Your entire post brings a wonderful perspective.

Thank you for this post and your blogsite overall. Thank you for sharing.

I will be praying for you and the rest of the US Military.

Please email me with the source, if possible.


Whoops. My mistake for my previous post.


It's great to meet a cool dude like you. I was cruising and checking out Blogs, which is totally new for me. Not sure if this will work. If it does, I hope to come back and hear more from you.
I listened to a discussion about why WW2 Vets didn't want to talk about their experiences. The conclusion is that most Vets felt like their job in the war was not important. Some may have been at a critical place and time but they felt like their action did not impact the outcome of events.
As a Christian, your every step is ordained. I pray that He looks over you.
