Greetings AB’s! Blessings from the Mighty Creator.
Starting this article by congratulating all our newly advanced ABs throughout the fleet. We ask God’s Wisdom and Guidance as they take on their added responsibilities.
On the issue of COVID, many are experiencing the feeling of confinement and depression. Understand that those in Leadership are attempting to maneuver through these difficult times in the best interest of the Mission. The decisions they made early on helped prevent our warfighters from becoming a statistic.
As we are becoming more immune, Commands are making plans to get back to normal in the safest manner possible. Continue to pray for those who have been affected and bring comfort to those who have lost Brother and Sister’s to this vicious enemy. If you are experiencing increased depression, please reach out for help.
We continue to hear and see the rising discord in our communities throughout the Nation. The military is not immune to some of the hatred that has reared its ugly face. We have, however, lead the way for many decades now, in showing others how to work and communicate as a team. You can have differing views of opinion; you do not have the right to attempt to force those views on others. Romans 12:18 tells us “ if it is possible, as much as it depends on you, live peaceably with all men.”
I would ask all of you to remember those currently in harm’s way. To continue to keep those recovering from illness or injury in your prayers. We also ask for the Creators Peace and Comfort to be with the Family and Loved ones who have passed to the Flight Deck in Paradise.
