We are in Annapolis, today we went to the Navy-SMU football game. Rick’s class (USNA”76) held a mini-reunion before the game. The food was great, I saw a familiar face or two (exactly TWO to be exact) and Rick caught up with quite a few old friends. The game was exciting, Navy was down 14-0 at the half and came back to win 28-24, so there is joy! Well, there was until the Phillies lost just now.
The part of today that I liked best was the National Anthem. Every time we attend a sporting event, high school or professional, they always start the game with the National Anthem of course. I always sing along, but I feel like I’m doing it on my own. Today, when the O, Say Can You See began, the whole, I mean whole crowd was singing. Everyone was singing full-voiced and the stadium rang with the song.
I love the military. I love the men and women who serve. I love the fact that they love the USA! It will be such an honor to serve them through this ministry.
