Criticism

 

Leap of Faith MinistriesClarksville, TN – One of the most subtle sins that always entangles us is an attitude of criticism. It causes more unhappiness than all the physical diseases put together. It breaks up marriages, chases children away from home, and splits groups.

People become physically ill because they have been so wounded in their souls by constant fault finding. Some withdraw into mental illness; others commit crimes or turn to alcohol, drugs, and over eating, or become social misfits or chronic failures because they have been told over and over again that everything they do is wrong. «Read the rest of this article»

Fort Campbell Special Forces Operations complex memorialized as Williams Hall

 

Written by Staff Sgt. Barbara Ospina
5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) Public Affairs

5th Special Forces based at Fort Campbell, KYFort Campbell, KY – The Medal of Honor is our Nation’s highest military honor awarded for valor.  It is for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of life above and beyond the call of duty, and is awarded by the president of the United States on behalf of Congress.

To someone who does not know the true meaning of the award, it may be viewed as merely a medal that hangs around one’s neck, but it is much more than that. It is prestigious and comes at great sacrifice and selflessness.
