• I'm a NAVY vet myself, and I understand respecting our respective fallen (lord knows I love them all). I'm the proud member of two veterans organizations ( I cook for them, crowds of 200 plus), and I do everything I possibly can to support my brothers that have served. I appreciate to the "N"th degree what you're saying ... and I love ya for trying ... but Sweet Heart ... this is an international forum and sometimes we'd be better to mourn privately.

      I'm not mourning. I'm thankful. On an international level! Not just for our fallen but for them all!

  • i dont think so
  • Isaiah had said: "And when they say to you, 'Inquire of the mediums and the necromancers who chirp and mutter,' should not a people inquire of their God? Should they inquire of the dead on behalf of the living?" The Gospel of Mark teaches that "He is not God of the dead, but of the living." However, Jesus taught: "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted." What is clear is that short term mourning the loss of a loved one is a necessary step for long term health, but I believe that once a period of time has passed, it's best to focus on the positive things that can come of life. I think that's all Patton was saying - not that it's wrong to take a moment to mourn, but that it's the moving on that's most important.

      Good point, and well said!
