WILLIAM MILLER served with the Marines in Vietnam. A few years ago he and his wife attended an outdoor festival in a small Kansas town. He was wearing his red ball cap with ...

Whom Were You With?

“1st Marine Aircraft Wing, MASS Duce, Dong Ha on the DMZ, ’68–’69. You?”

“2/5, Hue City, Tet ’68.”

“Semper Fi.”

With that, the two men moved along in the crowd, leaving Miller to reflect on the brief encounter. There had been many like it over the years. He was often the one asking the question, “Who were you with?” He always got an answer. No one ever said, “What do you mean?” He was amazed at the enduring strength of this bond with fellow Marines.

I have been privileged to share this bond with Marines and other veterans. I have also been blessed later in life to share an even greater bond. When I say to someone, “God bless you,” I often get a nervous glance in return. Frequently, however, I make contact with a brother or sister in Christ. When this happens outside the church, I am always uplifted by the knowledge that the Christian community is strong and active in the world. This community cuts across denominational lines, and these bonds are eternal.
