ORLANDO -- Sustaining a military marriage is difficult, especially when deployments keep a family separated for prolonged periods. The strain is intensified when there is an injury. According to the PTSD Foundation of America, an estimated two-thirds of marriages fail for troops suffering from combat trauma. Carlos and Rosemarie Evans know first-hand. In "Standing Together: The Inspirational Story of a Wounded Warrior and Enduring Love" (Kregel), they share their story of facing severe injury, rehabilitation, PTSD and addiction.

I along with millions of Americans will celebrate Independence Day on July 4TH. I hope all will pause, reflect and give thanks to our Creator for bestowing to us this great country. But freedom is not free. I suggest readers research what happened to the signers of the Declaration of Independence. All lost their fortunes, some were executed, families persecuted and destroyed, and more. They gave their all to provide us with the freedoms we enjoy today. So did the hundreds of thousands that have lost their lives in all of America’s wars since the Revolutionary War, including those that are serving and protecting us in today’s wars.

The Forgotten War, The Forgotten Victory

Here in the upstate of South Carolina, and all across the nation, a select group of men and women remember well answering the call, (Selective Service, ie: Draft Notice), for military service. Going where? to a land most had never heard of and surely couldn’t speak the language. And because the United States had not been attacked by anyone, and because we were still feeling the effects of WWII, the big question was why? The short answer was the United Nations and because the US government and the American people did not think we should go to War in Korea, most resented it and ever since it has become known as the “Forgotten War”.
