Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.
— John 15:13
Every man or woman who joins the U.S. military basically agrees to lay down their life for their country. For the freedoms and protection of men, women, and children they do not even know. Active duty military members and veterans view this country in a different light. Followers of Jesus must be willing to stand in the fray for their faith, for fellow believers, and for those who do not yet know Christ.
