Reader and thinker Dominique Poirier, a long time friend of The Captain’s Journal and contributor to learned comments, has released a tribute to us via YouTube. I am not only flattered by this video, but also struck at his American patriotism. I recall one specific e-mail to me in which this citizen of France recited the pledge of allegiance – the U.S. pledge of allegiance – while making glowing observations about American culture and heritage. But I am also struck at what a good video this is. It is good to the extent that it shows our fighting man and his surroundings, his toil, and his emotions. I have been deeply rooted in thinking and praying over our warriors for quite a long time now. I thank Dominique for this video, and it shows how committed he is to the campaign, to freedom around the globe, and to living in peace with fellow man. It is well worth the three minutes it took to view it.
