An Examination of the Vietnam War
Presented by Wallace Long
Within the limits set by its size, an army's worth as a military instrument equals the quality and quantity of its equipment multiplied by what, in the present study, will be termed as "fighting power".The latter rests on mental, intellectual, and organizational foundations, the willingness to fight and the readiness, if necessary, to die. "Fighting Power" in brief is defined as the sum total of mental qualities that make armies fight.
by Martin van Creveld
Soldiers. of course, do not usually think of what they are doing in such abstract terms, just as people do not think of the Special Theory of Relativity when they use a GPS. To design a GPS, however, does require reference to the Special Theory. In the same way, to understand the deeper implications of how a military organization really works, is a very profound undertaking.
In war, the moral is to the physical as three to one. by Napoleon Bonaparte

The CYRE classes for 2017 have some tentative plans scheduled for the kiddos through December. At this time the majority of our children attending are toddlers from 2-3 year of age. Therefore, Aurora will be our daycare attendant during and after the service until 1-1:30 p.m. unless we have a quarterly meeting that goes longer.
Elementary age students should have a brief lesson from the curriculum chosen by chairpersons. We have decided that once a month there will be an outing for all children to participate in. Some of these are social justice activities and others are fun adventures that promote sharing, learning, and time for friends!
