General Jerry Boykin on Rear Admiral William Lee
“The people that do know their God
shall be strong, and do exploits.”
Decorated U.S. Army General Jerry Boykin is an extraordinary American hero in every since of the word. His military exploits renown and the demonstration of his faith is exemplary.
Hear what he has to say regarding Admiral William Lee’s presentation at the National Day of Prayer last thursday.
“Rear Admiral William Lee demonstrated real courage when he spoke at the National Day of Prayer event in the nation’s capital. I have seen courage manifested in many ways, including the ultimate sacrifice of one’s life for one’s country, but this type of moral courage is becoming more and more rare. This is especially true as we live in an environment increasingly hostile toward religious expression. The kind of courage that the Admiral displayed yesterday is a refreshing reminder that there are still courageous men in uniform. Rear Admiral Lee spoke of rules in the uniformed services that prevent Christians from sharing their faith and he pledged to continue to be open about his faith regardless of the pressure not to. He obviously knows that he has a constitutional right to share his faith unimpeded. Talking about Jesus Christ with interested friends and colleagues should be as natural and protected as talking about sports teams and the weather. That it is now under threat is simply un-American.
“You want a real hero? Just look no further than Rear Admiral William D Lee.”
“Hopefully, the skeptics who have offered opinions about the extent of hostility toward Christians in our uniformed services will wake up and take notice of what the Admiral said yesterday. He is giving you the truth and it is hard truth that must cause concern among all Americans and not just Christians,” concluded General Boykin.
I couldn’t agree more.
I’ll see you out in the field,
