Remembering a Hero: Medal of Honor Winner Walter D. Ehlers

avatar

When I was in basic training some 12 years ago, one of my drill sergeants advised that it would behoove us to, after we finished our training, take time and go to VFW’s and military halls and talk to old time veterans. Those that punched Nazism in the face and saved the world from evil. His reasoning was simple enough, they won’t always be there to talk to and year after year more and more finish the long march to their reward.

While I did heed my drill sergeants advice, I sometimes regret that I didn’t give more of an effort to seek out the old dogs of war and hear their tales.

So, when I hear that another of the greatest generation has shuffled off this mortal coil I like to take a moment and highlight the heroism, now seven decades past, that should still reverberate in the hearts of any true American.

Last Thursday, one of the last surviving Medal Of Honor recipients of World War II died of kidney failure at the age of 92.

Sgt Walter Ehlers was just 23 years old when, from June 9th to the 10th 1944 during the invasion of Normandy, Ehlers displayed heroism above and beyond the call of duty.

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military

Dr. Sonny Hernandez

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military is a field manual for US service members and military chaplains. This Gospel-Centered, polemical book exposes the homosexual agenda that adversely affects Religious Liberty for Christians. There are several homosexual activists that will demand equality and tolerance. However, homosexual activists are not so equal or tolerant towards anyone that disagrees with their position on same sex marriage or transgenderism. They will claim to love all, but they really do not mean all—they mean agenda. This is because the homosexual agenda has a definition for inclusivity—their way or the highway.
