TONIGHT's Topic:

"Facing Adversity: A Grain of Knowledge from Rice!"

"Brigadier General of the Volunteers James Clay Rice, born on this day in 1828, died at the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House giving us a grain of knowledge regarding facing adversity with his last words ever uttered.  As he lay mortally wounded, Gen. Rice told his troops, "Turn me over that I may die with my face to the enemy". 

With those powerful words being the last he ever spoke, James Rice taught us that facing adversity, even death and our enemies that mortally wound us, should be taken head on, with courage and dignity.  Gen RIce, in that last breath, taught a valuable lesson in how we approach even the most difficult of situations.

How do you face adversity?  Is it head on, face to the enemy, with courage?  If not, how can you improve how you handle challenges?" Air Force Veteran Steven Bates 

Join us tonight with Air Force veteran and author Steven Bates during the Warriors for Life Support Group Mid-Week Musings as we discuss Facing Adversity and the valuable lesson from Brigadier General James RIce in how to do so.
