I truly hope everyone enjoys their Easter and most importantly, remember what the true meaning of the day is. Read below you get the point. Time for a C-Gar

 

Cross

Easter is a special time that has more meaning than lil bunnies & colored eggs. There are several warriors that will be worshipping the true meaning in a land that doesn’t even recognize our religions. Interesting isn’t it? We are there helping those that hate our religions.

Times are interesting with our country changing especially regarding religion here or like here.  Make sure you enjoy your family, freedom and right to worship how you wish because in some countries you could be killed for believing in certain religions. Remember the meaning the true meaning of Easter and praise.

Time for a CGar!

 

Easter in Afg
I was on my second tour in Afghanistan and about half way through it. We had taken our share of wounded and KIA and I can tell you like any combat deployment, it had its challenging times. One day I was out and about I happen to look down and see the rock pictured above.

 

Regardless of what you believe

It’s more than a coincidence that I happen to look down at that moment. I believe everything happens for a reason and at that time of the deployment a nice spiritual boost was welcomed. There aren’t any atheists in fox holes, especially when things get ugly.  It’s ok to be scared when it’s bad, you just have to have the guts to push through it and that’s called courage. I carried this rock with me and kept it where I could glance over to it when I knew things were tough or I was receiving a 9-line to medivac a wounded Marine and prayed he would make it.

I do find it interesting that in that type of environment/religion in Afghanistan I find a cross. A cross made in the rock naturally. I dint carve it, it was left in the rock as it was formed. Like the rock that was moved from the grave when Jesus rose from the dead. This Easter you may not find a rock with a cross in it but know that regardless of what you believe, there is something bigger out there than our small little world. A greater element that died for us. 

If the Army and the Navy Ever look on Heaven’s scenes; They will find the streets are guarded By United States Marines.

Happy Easter America…….time for a CGar

I guess fury little bunnies are cute, if your five years old. Although a fan of chocolate, I have found it doesn’t last in 100+ temps and regardless of what is happening in the world, we should remember the true meaning of the day. Hint: it has nothing to do with rabbits! On this Easter day, take time out to think about things and from One Marine's View, have a Happy Easter. 

Time for a C-Gar!
