    Serving The Best Troops and Veterans In The World !! | The Canteen Crew
            THOUGHT FOR THE WEEKEND There is a line separating dedication-to-duty from "work-a-holism". Dedication to duty is good, healthy, and positive. Work-a-holism, on the other hand, is negative, harmful and eats away at family relationships. We must know the difference between the two. Let me tell you about a man who was called the Greatest American Soldier of the 20th Century: General George C. Marshall. Born in Uniontown, PA in 1880, he graduated from Virginia Military Institute in 1902. As a junior infantry officer in the US Army he served two tours in the Philippines, in...

    For future reference, a list of congressmen or major public figures who opposed transfer of ICANN to foreign control is important. Granted that some senators are taking a stand now, for political reasons, but FReepers can put that on the list as background information. Please keep your post brief so the list can be skimmed quickly. Or separate the name and your comment with a paragraph. Some FReepers have argued that the impending transfer on October 1, 2016 is akin to giving Communist China the Panama Canal--or worse: because they who control domain name listings, control Free Speech.

This physiological wind source is a timely aid in propelling an exhausted runner onward to the finish. The phenomenon of the "second wind" has a spiritual principle, too. When the purposes of God seem too distant to continue, God provides a "second wind" to propel his people onward to finish the cause in which they are engaged. Indeed: "They that wait...

    FReepers are a special kind of people. The first FReeper, was a man named Jim Robinson.  Seeing things take place in our nation that he knew were wrong, he decided to develop an internet site where patriots could gather and network to effect change.  In a short period of time there were literally thousands of people who had joined him.  Many were joining him in Washington, D.

            FAITH OR FEAR? For whatever does not originate and proceed from faith is sin [whatever is done without a conviction of its approval by God is sinful]. — Romans 14:23 Is it possible to allow someone to control and manipulate us, honestly saying we are doing so in faith? Of course not! We know this type of behavior is rooted in fear, not faith. Faith obeys God, but fear is easily intimidated and finds many excuses for disobedience.
