By Remy Benoit

I graduated from West Point with the Class of 1968. My combat action spanned a short period from July through August 5, 1969, when I was shot in the elbow and medivaced to Japan. So while I was not in combat over a holiday period, I can pass on what gave me comfort in that environment.

I am a strong Christian and believe what God has promised in the Bible when he said he would never leave us nor forsake us.

Thus I found comfort in knowing that no matter what situation I found myself in, I would never be alone. And if something happened to me, I would be going to a better place. There is much comfort in knowing who is in charge and knowing that my future was secure.

As Christians, we are never alone. The presence of comrades is important, but not always possible. God is always there.

Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas.

Don Jones, LTC (Ret), US Army
