“What Day Is It?”

Good “Wednesday & Hump Day!” Morning “Band of Brothers & Sisters,” and all great connections. Welcome from the “Colonel’s Foxhole” in The Woodlands, TX — 22 June 2022!


Today’s Message is: “Open Your Eyes Day!” Why Not?


“Leaders really need to open their eyes to have clear vision and see what’s right in front of them. They need to see the big picture and all of the small and large pieces that make up that big picture. Great leaders open their eyes to new possibilities, open their minds to new ways things might work, and make the right decisions to move forward. Opening their eyes will encourage others to open their eyes toward goals and new possibilities that will benefit them, everyone on the team, and the organization. Is your leadership Eye-Opening?” —COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Good afternoon Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. In my searches today, I could not find anything that was brief, they were very lengthy, so I have opted to say a brief word and post some memes. Our world today is so against what God’s Word would have us do. Many refuse to accept that there is a God or that it is all just foolishness. If they would only open their eyes to the truth, we would see a drastic change for the better. Have a blessed day today and always.

Thank you Mikel. I would like to say that I do not know any non-believers, but unfortunately I do. I try to show by example the love of God. One can only hope and pray! Blessings.

It always amazed me how the military would spend fortunes on think tank studies that usually recommended what the folks on the front line have been saying all along.

Exactly, they just needed to listen and open their eyes to those on the front lines that had the right ideas and concepts all along... I got a lot of great ideas, suggestions, and new polices and procedures from the front line troops at the lowest level. Too easy Jack... Have a great day my friend.
