There comes a time when --- you know --- you just gotta stick it out. Like when you were in that hooch, surrounded by some real angry ARVANs and other North Vietnamese soldiers out to see that you don’t live another day. And that’s not counting the endless rainy season and the sweat that drools from your face and the rest of your body as you try pondering if your trigger finger is up to the task again. But, you manage to shake off that unfulfilling memory to ponder your latest opponent, this unbelievable Coronavirus, better known as COVID-19. I mean, it’s not human. Soooooo. How do you take charge of your life --- and that of your family and friends ---with no briefing but to wear a nose-to-mouth mask and surgical gloves to protect you from your worst nightmare, a microbe? As Nebraska Legionnaires, we have “fond” memories of our times serving America in CONUS and abroad, whether it was in actual battle, behind the lines, or just chilling’ with your “troops“ in your favorite watering hole. Things have changed. Yet, some things manage to remain the same. Like you, for instance. What we have done, and should continue to do, is be the person the military and the Lord’s Word have trained us to do: be husbands, wives, siblings, aunts and uncles, grandparents, friends, and neighbors who look out for one another. The wars abroad were one thing. But this war on COVID-19 --- despite it being something completely different --- will take a different kind of offensive on our parts to overcome. And OVERCOME we will. So, take a deep breath, clear your throat and sinuses, and get on about being a veteran in the greatest nation on this planet. Everyone knows you’re a “cool” person. So, even with this COVID-19 thing harassing us, take heart. We’ll pull through like the veteran Nebraska Legionnaires who we are.
We’ll try to keep the calendar which appears on Page 1 updated. It can be found on the Post 3 website. https://lincolnpost3.org/
