Thanksgiving During Wartime
I’ll never forget the day when Duane and I spent our 2nd Thanksgiving together, apart. He was in Vietnam. I was a young bride missing and concerned about my husband, as he was ‘in the bush’.
What kind of Thanksgiving Day would he have? To my amazement, our small, local newspaper’s Thanksgiving edition had on the front cover a picture of our troops in Vietnam having Thanksgiving dinner. They were eating outdoors at a firebase, and there in the center of the picture was…Duane! Clear and recognizable. The newspaper did not list the names of the soldiers; they didn’t know one of them was married to one of their residents.
Needless to say, it was a blessing…I believe from heaven…to me.
Those were very difficult days, just like today, and our young troops need our constant show of support. They really do. What better way than to send them a special treat this holiday season? Treats for Troops is one organization that can help you do just that. And I couldn’t agree with them more when they say:
“For troops serving our country, sharing their blessings is something they do every day, not just one day a year. One for all and all for one is the unwritten rule in the military. Some soldiers share everything they get with a group of their fellow troops. Some pass out goodies to those who receive little mail. The care packages from strangers who want to reach out and show their support touch their hearts so deeply they sometimes bring tears. And knowing that someone cares, or is simply thinking of you, can lift morale and strengthen resolve in ways we civilians simply can’t understand."
Thanksgiving is a holiday meant to be shared. A time to count our blessings, and have our friends and family near. Unfortunately, for those still engaged in the Middle East, they will not be home this Thanksgiving, just like Duane wasn't home with me.
What better time to let our troops know they are in our hearts, and in our prayers?
While the anti-war pundits make statements in the name of their political view and agenda, our young soldiers are laying their lives down for their country (for us), and for freedom. They need to know we support their courage, loyalty and efforts....that we support them.
While this month will see midterm elections, of which has been said is a contest over 'free stuff' or freedom, let's pray for the freedom our troops fight to protect on the battlefield, to be protected at the ballot box as well.
Happy Thanksgiving from both Duane and me,
