Following the botched landing in North Africa, during World War II, General Eisenhower arrived well after midnight in central Tunisia. The General was concerned with the next move the Allied forces were to make to advance our campaign. As he stepped away from his cramped headquarters for some thought and air, he heard a captain praying with his men.
“We do not pray for victory, not even for our individual safety. But we pray for help that none of us may let a comrade down – that each of us may do his duty to himself, his comrades, and his country, and so be worthy of our American heritage.”
Little did that captain know who was listening. Perhaps it was for the best, since the captain was calling on the God of heaven to hear his prayer and make them worthy Americans.
May we as Americans remember the heritage we have this Memorial Day and call on the same God to help us in our battles!! God bless you,
