Good morning Col Burroughs and Posse on this sunny Saturday morning.
I like this quote because so often as a warrior the greatest foe we face is ourselves. Our own fears, our lack of belief, impatience, and other negative emotions we inflict on ourselves are what keep us from performing at our best. To be true warriors we first have to conquor ourselves. What is your warrior strength and what is your weakness?

Lt Col Charlie Brown - What a great message about conquering ourselves Charlie... Thanks for the wisdom and great message for today's quotes and topic...

“Never lose that ‘Warrior Spirit’ – it will remain with you until they fold your flag brothers and sisters. There may tough days ahead, but you will call upon that ‘Warrior Spirit’ to pick you back up and keep your internal flame burning and that reminds me of this quote…

‘Being a warrior is an attitude!’ — Santosh Kumar

May you always be a ‘Warrior for Life’ and may your mind, body, and soul be opened to grace, goodness, peace, forgiveness, and a continued bountiful life of purpose; and keep your family safe, secure, happy, and healthy. Warriors never give up.” – COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Being a warrior is a way of life. This is why I admire the Samurai and the Templars. They were very religious to the point of understanding the spiritual world and lived and trained as Warriors. With the recent Army recruiting videos, I am concerned that we are no longer recruiting the true warrior class. Someday, when I have more time and where with all to type the full story, but the mean time the Reader's Digest Version is I had a rather blunt conversation w/ the mother with her son, when she told him that he should not be a Soldier/Warrior. The final piece of the conversation is that she was told that Mothers are the key to raising the Warrior Class. She could raise her son to be a fat little man cleaning the enemies boots or raise him to be hard as nails and fight to defend his Mother, Family, and Country. The conversation ended w/ the Mother staring at her son.

I hope you appreciate your relationship with the LORD of all creation. I expect you realize that the days of each human being are numbered in terms of life on this earth. There is a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die for each one of us in God’s perfect timing. By God’s grace I am a prayer warrior who intercedes as God directs me. 'For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance. [Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 ESV] my sister-in-Christ Lt Col Charlie Brown

I lift the grieving widows, widowers, orphans, and others grieving loss to YOU tonight dear LORD. I pray that You bless each with a peaceful night and calm dreams. LORD I pray that YOU motivate trustworthy comforters who are great listeners to help the grieving over the coming weeks and months. 'Sing to God, sing praises to his name; lift up a song to him who rides through the deserts; his name is the LORD; exult before him! Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in his holy habitation.' [Psalm 68:4-5 ESV]
I pray for a peaceful and secure night for the deployed military service warriors, police men and women, sheriff’s deputies and federal and state agents who are military warriors who fight for this nation, defend this nation and /or are prepared by experience and training to fight for this nation if called to do. I pray for comfort and peace their family members who are at home and pleasant dreams – especially for the children ‘Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD,
the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth.’ [Psalm 127:3-4 ESV]
As a prayer warrior by God’s grace, I pray for a sufficient self-control and patience for each adopted son and daughter of God who reads this prayer or hears it. LORD I pray that YOU use YOUR prayer warriors to intercede for the people of this nation, the neighborhoods and the spiritual health of this nation. ‘But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.’ [1 Peter 2:9-10 ESV]
Since many of us are military veteran warriors, who fought for this nation, defended this nation and /or were prepared by experience and training to fight for this nation if called to do. remember the admonition of the LORD ‘Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.’ [Ephesians 6:10-12 ESV]
‘Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.’ Ephesians 6:13-18 ESV]
I pray that you and your family members slept well Saturday night and will awake refreshed and healthy on Sunday morning.
By the power and authority of the Name above all names, Jesus the Christ.

Good Saturday morning Burroughs Posse Leader from another beautiful day in the greater Boston area... Headed up to about 78° today... I am just about ready to head out to my monthly DAV meeting and have lots to do, including your campaign to raise funds for abolishing Veteran medical debt... I will be back after my meetings to complete my quote message response... Have a great Saturday Colonel!

My sincerest condolences on the passing of your friend and brother, veteran, and warrior, David Bralish who passed yesterday from COVID-19! Indeed, may He rest in peace brother!

Today is: “Warrior Day!” Why Not?

“We chose whether to be warriors or to be ordinary.” – Carlos Castaneda

“A Warrior of Light does not postpone making decisions.”― Paulo Coelho

“If you’re a true warrior, competition doesn’t scare you. It makes you better.” – Andrew Whitworth

“The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.” ― G.K. Chesterton

“We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.” – George Orwell

“There are no extraordinary men… just extraordinary circumstances that ordinary men are forced to deal with.” – Admiral William “Bull” Halsey

A warrior has passed on...

"We lost a warrior today in Colorado to COVID-19 – A veteran, father, husband, grandpa, and brother – you’re going home brother – we’ll meet again and ride in heaven my warrior friend!” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs
