I spent 20 years in the USAF, 15 years in the DoD, Department of the Army, and 7 years workng for large defense contractors. It seemed that in all that time, everything was based on building the implements for war. A huge waste of human life, and an equally large waste of the taxpayer’s money. I was in Iraq as a contractor for just 2 months. I broke my contract because I saw things that made the Vietnam war look like kindergarden.
This world is very badly broken and sinful. I really think Jesus will be back soon, hopefully in my lifetime, but if not, that’s okay too. I know where my final destination will be, but it isn’t because of anything I did. It is all about what Jesus did for me on the cross with his shed blood.
