Back in the last week of January 2021, I had gathered from two sources that the military was in control of the federal government:

Of course, I didn’t know for sure, so I went for a walk. As I was walking down this bicycle path, I said to myself, “I believe that the military is in control of the federal government.” Immediately, the Holy Ghost fell very heavy on me and I knew that that was confirmation from the Lord that the military was in control. Glory to God in the Highest!

Last night I had a dream where I was walking out in the country.  It was ranch land; there were hills and mountains all around me.  It looked like it could have been in Idaho.  I walked up to this ranch house and went inside.  President Trump was sitting at this table in the kitchen.  I sat down and we talked for a short while.  We had a meal together.  President Trump looked like he was anticipating something.

12 November 2022

Last night I had a dream where I was walking through this building and saw these three guys.  They might have been carpenters or maintenance men.  Then I saw President Trump.  He walked up to these guys and talked with them.  President Trump was smiling and laughing with them.  I then walked down this hallway and bumped into President Trump and said, “Hello, Mr. President”.  He smiled and said hello and walked on down the hallway.

Notice in this dream, I didn’t say ex-President Trump.  In the dream, President Trump was happy, confident, relaxed.  President Trump was showing people by his very positive and upbeat demeanor that everything was under control and that everything was going to be okay.

There was a military confrontation between China and the US in the South China Sea   6 comments

This is from the blog The Eye of the Needle:

by Cesare Sacchetti

Submarines that engage in battles in the depths of the world oceans.

We are not talking about a story inspired by a Tom Clancy novel and we are not even talking about something that happened in the Cold War era, when US and Russia clashed quite frequently.

We are talking about something that took place recently and in order to better understand this story, we must mention a recent episode reported by the MSM.

Probably many of you have already heard news about the USS Connecticut. Recently, the media has reported that this US nuclear submarine hit a mysterious object in the South China Sea.

China has issued an official note to protest over this incident and accused Washington of “irresponsibility”.

China asked if this collision provoked the leaking of radioactive material in the water but the United States has not responded about this so far.

Before proceeding with this startling revelation, we must introduce the geopolitical context about the South China Sea to understand why this maritime zone is so strategic.

The territorial disputes over the South China Sea

The South China Sea is a sea zone surrounded by several countries of South East Asia, such as China, Vietnam, Malaysia, and the Philippines.

Each of these countries has been clashing for decades over the control of this area because each one of them claims the territorial sovereignity of the South China Sea.

Incidents and real marine battles here were not rare. In 1974, China and Vietnam had a clash over the territorial claim of the Parcel Islands. 74 Chinese and 18 Vietnam soldiers lost their lives in this incident although China was successful in gaining territorial control over these small islands in the South China Sea.

Tensions even increased in the following years. In 1988, there was another clash that involved once again China and Vietnam but this time for the control of the Spratly Islands. Vietnam paid a high price in terms of human lives with losses of 70 of its sailors who died in the battle. China lost only one man and seized the islands, defeating Vietnam.

The reason for these conflicts lies in the geopolitical significance of the South China Sea. One-third of the world trade passes in this area. Having control over this area gives a huge geopolitical leverage to the country that succeeds in this effort.

There are also other reasons for these constant disputes. Several experts believe that in the seabed beneath the South China Sea, lie huge reserves of natural gas and oil. Seizing these reserves would give a very significant advantage in terms of energy independence.

This is why every country involved in the South China Sea disputes claims this maritime zone.

China established its own principle to claim the entire area for itself. This principle is known as the nine-dash line, which is an imaginary line traced by the Communist dictatorship in 1947. This line basically assigns China most of the control of the area.

Other countries contested the legitimacy of China’s claim and the international jurisprudence recently clarified this issue.

In 2016, in a legal battle that involved China and the Philippines, the Permanent Court of Arbitration ruled that China’s nine dash-line criterion finds no legal basis in the international law.

The nine-dash line violates the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea and goes way beyond the 24-miles territorial waters limit.

The position of the US over the South China Sea disputes

The United States has not been assuming a very confrontational stance against China over the South China Sea territorial claims.

Instead, the US approach has been quite accommodating towards Beijing especially since the 90s.

Many geopolitical analysts have been correct in saying that China’s economic growth exploded in that decade, but they fail to mention the reasons behind China’s surge.

The occult government that rules America, also known as the deep state, did not do anything to prevent China from transforming into a huge economic power.

On the contrary, the powerful financial lobbies of the deep state financed the economic development of China.

Wall Street has been forming a very close alliance with the Chinese Communist dictatorship.

Hundreds of millions of dollars have been poured into China and the country that was a few decades ago, one of the most underdeveloped in terms of technology and industrialization, has turned into one of the most advanced in the world.

After China joined the World Trade Organization, its cheap and poor-quality goods flooded every market in the world.

At that time, the United States governed by the Clinton administration did not even try to oppose China’s entry in the WTO. On the contrary, it allowed it and praised it as a great opportunity, by stating that “by joining the WTO, China is not simply agreeing to import more of our products, it is agreeing to import one of democracy’s most cherished values, economic freedom.”

Of course, none of this has ever taken place. China has been dramatically increasing its exports and the Western world has turned into the importer of its products.

This has not happened by mistake. There was a reason why the deep state allowed China to join the WTO.

The reason lies in the concept of globalization. The idea which globalization is founded upon is free trade without any restrictions.

Globalist powers like the World Economic Forum and the Club of Rome conceived of a world where the Western hemisphere was completely deindustrialized.

Their idea was to move the entire supply and production chains to Asian countries as a way to lower the cost of labor and deprive the Western world of its industrial power.

Therefore, globalism needed China to pave the way to globalization. This is why China has never been contained by the deep state or by the globalist institutions.

China was chosen by the most influential financial families such as the Warburgs, the Rockefellers and the Rothschilds as the “model” country for the New World Order global authoritarian society.

We have been seeing the acceleration of this process with the COVID terrorist operation when China terrified the world with useless lockdowns to contain the spread of the new coronavirus.

Later, we saw China’s true strategy emerging. China accepted its part in this artificial crisis only to take advantage of the economic crisis of the Western world by buying its companies that ended up failing because of suicidal lockdowns.

However, we have been recently become aware that there are some problems between China and the globalist powers because China has no intention to pave the way to a New World Order run by these powers. China wants to sit on the throne of its own economic empire.

This is the reason why America has been working for China for more than two decades. Professor Dongsheng who teaches International Relations at Renmin University, explained very well in a public speech, the relationship between China and the deep state.

The Chinese academic said that the reason why China has been prospering undisturbed is because the Communist dictatorship is deeply connected to the financial élite that rule America.

There was no quarrel between Peking and Washington. Everything was fine for China until Donald Trump was elected to the White House.

Trump’s election completely upset the plans of the globalist powers. The plan of the deep state was to put Hillary Clinton in the Oval office, further strengthening the US-China relationship.

Trump’s America First doctrine put an end to America being subservient to China. For the first time after decades, there was a President in the White House who placed America’s interests before everything else.

Trump separated the United States from the lethal grip of the New World Order and by doing so, separated America from China.

However, tensions between China and America did not stop even under the so-called Biden administration.

This situation has surprised many observers because Joe Biden was supposed to mend the relations between these two countries because Biden has been on China’s payroll for years. We have not been seeing anything of this happening.

Most probably, the reasons why Biden has not changed Trump’s policy must be found in what might have happened in January 2021.

Several military sources claim that Trump signed the Insurrection Act before leaving the White House.

The President had no other choice to prevent the coup d’état that had been perpetrated against him.

Therefore, if this information is correct, neither Biden nor Harris have effectively been in charge.

America is likely ruled by the military loyal to Trump in this moment. This scenario would be perfectly consistent with what Biden, or most likely the military, has done in foreign policy matters.

Biden withdrew troops from Afghanistan and increased sanctions against China, while the international finance and the deep state asked him to do otherwise.

All these events seem to suggest that someone else is in charge in the White House and it is not Joe Biden. Neither is it the deep state. Someone else is in control and this someone is not following the deep state agenda.

We needed to introduce this geopolitical and historic reconstruction because it could be quite important to put into context what happened recently in the South China Sea.

As was mentioned before, the USS Connecticut did not hurt any object.

According to the Pentagon source who has reached out to us, there was a military confrontation between this submarine and the Chinese military near the Spratly Islands.

The USS Connecticut was assigned a secret mission, which was to destroy the system communications of a Chinese military base in one of the islets of this sea zone.

Once the submarine reached the coast where the base was located, it launched a missile against the target.

Apparently, the mission was successful because the base was destroyed. However, China reacted and launched a counteroffensive against the American submarine that was damaged by the Chinese attack.

Chinese Joint Staff was furious over the US sabotage operation and demanded an ever more resolute military response.

Only a phone call from the higher ranks of the Chinese government prevented a military escalation between Washington and Peking.

All this information would be reported in a classified NATO document.

However, the Pentagon source who has reached out to this blog has shared even more startling revelations about this crisis between US and China.

We have been seeing in these days that Facebook and Instagram suffered unexplained and unprecedented outages.

Facebook said that these blackouts were caused by a configurational issue.

However, our source told us that what we have been seeing happening to Facebook is the direct result of a Chinese cybernetic attack as a retaliation over the Spratly Islands battle.

If this scenario is correct, China has not damaged Trump and the military who is loyal to him, but rather a social network that is a part of the deep state machine power.

Facebook has been censoring everything that contradicts the globalist single thought. Nevertheless, Davos and the other globalist circles are not happy with Zuckerberg.

Soros demanded his “removal” from the platform one year ago and the Facebook whistleblower, Frances Haugen, who’s denouncing this social platform is tied to Democratic Party groups.

Globalism demanded an even more aggressive censorship on Facebook and (probably) a blacklisting of the “extremists” users to be reported to the local authorities.

In any case, this scenario is another confirmation that there is an underground battle that affects what happens on the surface.

What we see on the surface is just a slight glimpse of what happens in the depths of the real world.

Patriots who are still loyal to President Trump are fighting this battle against the New World Order everyday in the underground world.

If we have not been plunging into the Great Reset, it is because America has not yet fallen in the hands of the masonic powers that have ruled over America for decades.

However, there is a very appropriate quote by Honorè de Balzac to explain the dynamics that affect our lives.

De Balzac said that “there are two histories: official history, lying, and then secret history, where you find the real causes of events.”

The New World Order totalitarian plan has been progressing because a veil of secrecy has been protecting it.

If we want to know who the real rulers of this world are, we must remove that veil and start learning secret history, where the real causes of events take place.

A Sign in Nuremberg   22 comments

Nuremberg Trials, 1946

“REMEMBER, AFTER NUREMBERG, SEVEN PHYSICIANS SWUNG.”*

This is from the blog Richard’s Watch:

Thank you to Jane B for alerting me to this posted early afternoon UK time on Johnny & Elizabeth Enlow’s Facebook :

“I just this morning [10 February 2021] was contacted by a trusted friend in Europe telling me the news that a fire had broken out in the Nuremberg, Germany power plant that was to shut down the plant for a couple of weeks. It is freezing and snow-covered there and so it will be difficult and dark for the people. We are sorry for them but the message is unmistakable. It was my friend’s own prophetic decode that this was a warning even to those behind the sham impeachment [against President Trump] going on in DC, with a big reminder for them of the Nuremberg Trials that followed the fall of Nazi Germany. As you may know, I have prophesied that these type of trials are forthcoming. God will not be mocked. Justice at a visible level is coming.”

This exceptional message dated 7 December 2020 reads:

Nuremberg Trials

“The public justice phase of God’s clean-up is going to be shocking and quite beyond what most can imagine. Justice comes on the back end of Truth. Exposure demands a consequence. What is coming will bring to mind the Nuremberg Trials that ran between 1945-1949. Nazi war criminals were tried in public international courts that were controversial but necessary. They were overseen by a US Supreme Court Justice but included judges from several countries. The trials skipped normative justice “due process” and were followed by immediate executions of well known public figures. Herman Goering who was Hitler’s essential successor was sentenced to hang and committed suicide the night before. There were many suicides to avoid executions.

“Of interest today, doctors accused of medical experiments were executed. I say that, as a phase of justice is coming for those who have been part of a synchronized health fraud perpetuated on the nations of the world that has destroyed world economies and caused death by many indirect means. Social media owners, directors and enforcers will face severe consequences that extend far beyond mere financial ruin.

“God’s roaring justice is going to have a visible appearance and will use human institutions and individuals. I saw Him anointing specific individuals with an oil of justice that made them as resolute as you can possibly imagine. Sidney Powell has been anointed with such an oil but there is much more coming. Some who even right now are teetering on whether they want to risk being a part of this justice reveal are this very week going to have that oil poured on them and suddenly their backbone is going to snap into place and they will be part of God’s infrastructure of justice on earth.

“This reveal (sic) of public justice is going to change the world as we know it because all will be watching. Thousands will flee positions of power. Thousands will accept amnesty opportunities that will be forthcoming. Thousands will repent. This justice thing God will assist in facilitating will be above our own Supreme Court and there are those on the Supreme Court that will face consequences for their own high-level treachery. The fear of the Lord will suddenly be back in the moral fiber of society as long-suppressed justice comes rolling in like a flood. Like a flood there will be no hole where it is safe to hide as the justice will press through every crack and every crevice. Your assignment as the Body of Christ is to agree with this reveal of justice and to praise and worship God as it comes in. This is now next in God’s plan and it is a plan you can trust. He absolutely will not be quenched by the refuge of lies and He will publicly wash them away in His incoming flood of justice.”

“If you look at the images of Wuhan in these days, you will see how China fooled the world. People are wearing no masks. There’s no social distancing. No green pass and no vaccination required. In January 2020, the media showed us the images of the Chinese lockdowns. It was a terrorist propaganda show. China played a part to start the fake pandemic. Now China is waiting for the Western world to commit suicide by taking lethal vaccines and collapsing its economy with lockdowns. China is now ready to buy the Western world at cheap prices.”

A Marine’s Encounter with Michael the Archangel   2 comments

This is from Fellowship of the Minds:

In the Korean War (1950-53), a U.S. Marine named Michael had an encounter with his namesake and patron saint, to whom he had prayed every day since his youth for protection. Below is a revised (for literary effect) version of soldier Michael’s letter to his mother, which was verified by the Navy chaplain Walter Muldy. (Sources: Opus Sanctorum Angelorum: Angel StoriesTFP Student Action)

My company and I went out on patrol on a foggy wintry day.

A new soldier had joined our group and was marching alongside me.

I turned to him and said, “I have never seen you before. I thought I knew every man in the outfit.”

The new soldier replied, “I just joined at the last minute. My name is Michael.”

“Is that so?” I said, surprised. “That’s my name, too!”

“I know,” he said. “Michael, Michael, of the morning….”

Those are the beginning words of my daily prayer to St. Michael, my patron saint  as well as the patron saint of soldiers and police officers. How could this new soldier know my name, much less recite this same prayer? Still, I thought to myself, I had taught the prayer to the other soldiers. Perhaps, this was how the soldier knows it.

We walked in silence for a time. Suddenly, the new soldier Michael warned: “We are going to have some trouble up ahead.”

In the fog, Michael and I got separated from our company. Then, it began to snow. Later the fog lifted, the snow stopped and the sun came out. We walked over a little hill, and there were seven North Korean soldiers waiting for us with raised rifles 30-40 yards away.

I shouted, “Get down!” and threw myself on the ground just as the enemy soldiers began firing. But Michael just stood there, although he should have been killed instantly.

I got up to push Michael to the ground, but received a bullet to the chest.

I felt Michael’s strong arms around me. As he was laying me on the ground, I looked up and saw, not the new soldier, but St. Michael standing there in a blaze of glory, his face shining like the sun. He had a sword in his hand that flashed with a million lights!

That was the last thing I saw before I passed out.

When I awoke, I was surrounded by my company, who were attending to my wound.

I asked them, “Where is Michael?”

But nobody had seen this new soldier, Michael. Moreover, my sergeant said he had seen me walking alone. They wanted to know how I’d done it — how I had managed to kill all seven of the enemy troops without firing a shot.

You see, the seven North Korean troops had all been dispatched with the stroke of a sword.

President Donald Trump

If you look at the two photos of George Patton and the two photos of President Trump, there is a resemblance.  Even if Trump doesn’t look exactly like Patton, I believe these photos are prophetic.  Patton was a great warrior in World War II; Trump is a great warrior in a worldwide spiritual/political/intellectual war:  Judaeo-Christianity versus Satanic Globalism (Deep State) (World War III?).  Patton was a great battleaxe; Trump is a great battleaxe:

Jeremiah 51: 20-24:  “Thou art my battle axe and weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms;  And with thee will I break in pieces the horse and his rider; and with thee will I break in pieces the chariot and his rider;   With thee also will I break in pieces man and woman; and with thee will I break in pieces old and young; and with thee will I break in pieces the young man and the maid;   I will also break in pieces with thee the shepherd and his flock; and with thee will I break in pieces the husbandman and his yoke of oxen; and with thee will I break in pieces captains and rulers.   And I will render unto Babylon and to all the inhabitants of Chaldea all their evil that they have done in Zion in your sight, saith the LORD.”

Trump standing in front of the British Union Jack is also prophetic.  The Christianity exported from England (Episcopal, Presbyterian, Methodist, Quaker, Puritan, Independent) was a great influence on the original Thirteen Colonies and on the later development of the United States.

THE SOLDIER

It’s the soldier not the reporter
who gives you the freedom of the press.

It’s the soldier not the poet
who gives you the freedom of speech.

It’s the soldier not the campus organizer
who allows you to demonstrate.

It’s the soldier who salutes the flag, serves the flag, whose coffin is draped with the flag
that allows the protester to burn the flag!!!

Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need.”

The Soldier
By Gerard Manley Hopkins

YES. Why do we áll, seeing of a soldier, bless him? bless
Our redcoats, our tars? Both these being, the greater part,
But frail clay, nay but foul clay. Here it is: the heart,
Since, proud, it calls the calling manly, gives a guess
That, hopes that, makesbelieve, the men must be no less;
It fancies, feigns, deems, dears the artist after his art;
And fain will find as sterling all as all is smart,
And scarlet wear the spirit of wár thére express.

Mark Christ our King. He knows war, served this soldiering through;
He of all can handle a rope best. There he bides in bliss
Now, and séeing somewhére some mán do all that man can do,
For love he leans forth, needs his neck must fall on, kiss,
And cry ‘O Christ-done deed! So God-made-flesh does too:
Were I come o’er again’ cries Christ ‘it should be this’.

“Ninety-First Psalm Became Their Impenetrable Shield”

“For four long years, in the front line warfare of World War I, the British regiment commanded by Colonel Whittlesey had not one single battle casualty. They did not lose a single man! They could only give one explanation for this incredible record.

“During those interminable years of danger and valor, every officer and every enlisted man in the regiment daily affirmed his faith in God’s protection by repeating the Ninety-First Psalm.”

“Each officer and soldier in the regiment carried a complete copy of the psalm and either read it or recited it from memory daily.”

With the Old Breed
By E.B. Sledge

Page 91: “The conversation with Hillbilly reassured me. When the sergeant came over and joined in after getting coffee, I felt almost lighthearted. As conversation trailed off, we sipped our joe in silence.

“Suddenly, I heard a loud voice say clearly and distinctly, ‘You will survive the war!’

“I looked at Hillbilly and then at the sergeant. Each returned my glance with a quizzical expression on his face in the gathering darkness. Obviously they hadn’t said anything.

“‘Did y’all hear that?’ I asked.

“‘Hear what?’ they both inquired.

“‘Someone said something,’ I said.

“‘I didn’t hear anything. How about you?’ said Hillbilly, turning to the sergeant.

“‘No, just that machine gun off to the left.’

“Shortly, the word was passed to get settled for the night. Hillbilly and the sergeant crawled back to their hole as Snafu returned to the gun pit. Like most persons, I had always been skeptical about people seeing visions and hearing voices. So I believed God spoke to me that night on the Peleliu battlefield, and I resolved to make my life amount to something after the war.”

A Ride with a former Green Beret   4 comments

US Army Green Beret

28 November 2015

Yesterday I was walking north of Sugar City, Idaho on U.S. 20 when this pickup pulled over to give me a ride.  The guy’s name was Ted and he looked like he was in is late sixties or early seventies.  He was driving from Utah to Billings, Montana.  I told him that I was heading to Belgrade, Montana.

Ted spent 12 years in the Special Forces (Green Berets).  He did four tours in Vietnam.  Ted was from the Crow Reservation south of Billings.  He said that he was 15/16 Crow and 1/16 French.  I told Ted that I had hitchhiked across the Crow and Northern Cheyenne Reservations a number of times over the years.

Ted told me that, when he saw me, something hit him between the eyes and told him to pick me up.  We had a great talk all the way to Belgrade.

I told Ted that I was involved in intercession and spiritual warfare.  He told me that he had been working on a project on the Crow Reservation for 20 years to help the Crow Nation become more independent of federal welfare programs.  Ted has met with a lot of opposition.  I told him about the power of prayer and we talked much on the things of God.

We stopped at a gas station in Henry’s Lake, Idaho.  Ted bought me some biscuits and gravy and something to drink.  We then walked back to the pickup and he handed me a plate of Thanksgiving Dinner.  He told me that his friends in Utah prepared him a plate of dinner for him to eat on the road.  Ted knew it was for someone else.  As he drove through Utah, he saw this homeless guy (maybe in Salt Lake City) and offered him that plate of food.  The homeless guy told him that he had just eaten some dinner.  So Ted gave me the plate of food; I was very grateful.

Ted told me something interesting.  He said that is great grandfather was a Crow scout for Colonel George Custer.  His great grandfather had fought with Custer at the Battle of Little Big Horn.  His name was Gozerhead.  Ted said that the Sioux and Northern Cheyenne tribes were allied with the Blackfeet during the Indian Wars.  I told Ted that I have always enjoyed reading military history and that I worked for this guy on the Wind River Reservation in Wyoming–he was from the Arapaho tribe.  He told me that he had an uncle who did seven tours in Vietnam.

I love it when the Lord puts someone in your path and you have a lot in common with them.  When this happens, either you will say something that they were supposed to hear or else they will say something that you were supposed to hear.  It may be one word or one sentence and then the Lord engrafts it into your spirit and you grow stronger from it.  Some Christians call this a rhema* word.  You could also call it our Daily Bread.  Jesus is the Word of God and He is the Bread from Heaven.

Ted dropped me off just south of Belgrade and continued on to Billings.  I walked to the McDonald’s and got some tea to drink and sat down and read the Bible till it got dark.  I then walked to this junk pickup on the far side of town and hunkered down for the night.  It got down to minus three degrees Fahrenheit that night.  My two water bottles froze solid, my loaf of bread froze solid, the sandwich that Ted bought for me froze solid, but I did not freeze solid (actually, I stayed nice and warm that night).  It had been a very blessed day on the road.

“He Stood Untouched By 35 Firing Machine Guns”
.
Alvin York: “On October 6th, 1918, he was in a reconnaissance group of sixteen men sent to locate the German division responsible for the deadly machine gun fire that was pinning down his American unit.
.
“Stepping out of a thicket in the Argonne Forest, all sixteen men walked unknowingly right into the fire from thirty-five machine guns.  Ten of the mountaineer’s followers were killed instantly and two others were wounded but dashed back into the thicket.  So did the three other men in the group.  But red-headed Alvin York was angry.  He stood his ground.
.
“Every time a gunner peeped over the rim of his machine gun nest, York sent a rifle bullet through his head.  Oblivious to the German bullets, he stood erect and downed the enemy with deadly accuracy.  When the German officer sent a bayonet squad after him, York picked off each of the men, beginning with the last one and finally dropping the leader.
.
“Amazed at his prowess, the German Major called out that he would surrender his entire force if York would cease firing.  York agreed, and marched 132 prisoners, including three officers back to his own lines.
.
“General Pershing, commander of the American Expeditionary Force, acclaimed Alvin York ‘the greatest soldier of the war.’
.
“Alvin York absolutely believed that God supernaturally shielded him from those machine gun bullets.
.
“‘It was a higher power that shielded us,’ York said years later.  ‘The man on my right and the man on my left were shot to pieces.  I never got so much as a scratch or a cut on my uniform.’”

Here is an excerpt from To Conquer Hell:  The Meuse-Argonne, 1918 by Edward G. Lengel.  Chapter 16, page 251:

“Among the soldiers charged with carrying out Liggett’s plan was a tall, heavily freckled soldier with a thick red mustache, Corporal Alvin C. York.  A deeply religious, semiliterate farmer from Fentress County, Tennessee—one of the poorest counties in the United States—York was a draftee and deeply uncomfortable with shedding human blood, whatever the cause.  The War Department refused to grant him conscientious objector status, however, and his battalion commander and others succeeded in convincing him that military service was not inconsistent with God’s word.  York served, but he never grew comfortable with war.  Bayonet training with straw dummies left him feeling ‘queer to think I might have to cut up human beings.  I still didn’t want to kill.  I still did feel somehow that it was wrong—terrible wrong for human beings to take each other’s life.’

“All of which is not to say that York felt at all uncomfortable with guns.  He grew up in an era when guns and hunting were inescapable staples of American rural life, and like Jack Barkley, another country boy, he was an excellent marksman.  Yet York was a different kind of man.  Where Barkley, like many Doughboys, thrived on gambling, drinking, cussing, and combat, York preferred the simple life.

“‘I had put all of the drinkin’ and fist-fightin’ away behind me.  I left it back home on the Kentucky line.  I didn’t have a drink all the time I was in France.  I didn’t have a fist fight or an argument.  I didn’t swear or smoke either.  I wasn’t any better’n any of the other boys.  It was jes my way of livin’, that was all.’

“York said nothing about the Lost Battalion in his diary in early October.  Other thoughts occupied his mind.  ‘We went out on the main road,’ he wrote on October 5th, ‘and lined up and started for the front and the Germans was shelling the road and airoplanes was humming over our heads and we were stumbling over dead horses and dead men and shells were Bursting all around me.’  Faced with such sights, he could only look up to Heaven and spread his hands.  ‘Then it was,’ he wrote, ‘that I could see the Power of God helped man if he would only trust him.’  That—and a steady rifle.”
