Letter: President’s decision
September 10, 2013, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

America stands on the precipice of going to war in Syria. The commander in chief will address the nation tonight.

Congress debates, the U.N. confers and the folks worry. Our troops deployed around the world, including thousands at battle stations in the Mediterranean, will be ready for whatever orders the president issues. Our forces are prepared to engage the enemy from ships hundreds of miles away, from screaming aircraft or look them directly in the eye, if necessary. Our military will carry out the president’s orders effectively and may have to sacrifice their lives in the process. How fortunate we are to have the finest military in the world.

As we pray for President Obama to receive divine guidance, let us also remember the 100,000+ souls at the Golden Gate National Cemetery, located near Interstate 280 in San Bruno, who sacrificed their lives for their country. Many were killed in battle. Many more suffered horrendous injuries in combat. What an honor to care for the spirits of those American heroes. Those beautiful, gentle rolling hills of that sacred ground is not only a place to honor those servicemen and women, it is a reminder to all of us to make sure that we remain worthy of their sacrifice.

Ethan E. Jones
