Veterans Day 2014 - Honoring the Veterans of WWII
The following is a quote from the National War War II Museum in New Orleans, LA:
"Approximately every three minutes a memory of World War II – its sights and sounds, its terrors and triumphs – disappears. Yielding to the inalterable process of aging, the men and women who fought and won the great conflict are now mostly in their 90s. They are dying quickly – at the rate of approximately 555 a day, according to US Veterans Administration figures."
America owes an immeasurable debt to the veterans of World War II who were involved in a conflict like the world had never seen before or since. They fought not only for the freedom of a nation, but for literally the freedom of the world. Life as we know it on our planet would be amazingly different had that conflict been lost and tyranny allowed to reign.
We at Fellowship Free Will Baptist Church would like to honor the veterans of World War II in a special church service on Sunday, November 9, at 10:30 AM. Although we appreciate and welcome all veterans to attend that day, this service will be focused on the veterans of World War II. If you are a veteran of that war, we would love to have you! We encourage everyone who has a father, a grandfather, a brother, an uncle, anyone who was involved in that conflict, to try and arrange for them to be in the service. (We are wheelchair accessible).
If you have questions please feel free to contact our pastor either by email or phone. We would like to know how many veterans will be there. (Click here for our contact information.) We love our vets!
