Letter to a Christian Young Man Regarding Joining the Military
Back on February 13, 2009, I wrote a “Letter to a Christian Young Man Regarding Joining the Military.” At the end of the letter I included this appeal:
If any readers are veterans, consider themselves to be Christians, agree with the sentiments expressed in this letter, and would be willing to let me append their name, branch, and rank to any future use of this letter, please contact me at email@example.com. The fact that you â€œservedâ€ and I didnâ€™t might be what is needed to help persuade some young man (or woman) to not join the military.
I have now posted this letter on my websiteÂ with the names of about 40 Christian veterans who contacted me.Â If you are a Christian veteran and wish to have your name added, please contact me with your name, branch, and rank and I will add your information right away.
