One of the members of my class was also a graduate of Texas A&M, we were both Aggies. He washed out and ended up in the back seat of an F-4 as a EWO (Electronics Warfare Officer).
When I got back to Craig as an instructor. One of the students in my BOQ came by my room several times to talk.
What ties these men together?
I was on a cross country in San Antonio and ran into the commander of the Norwegian. He took an F-104 into the North Sea chasing a Soviet sub.
The Aggie was in the back seat of his F-4 when his pilot, with target fixation, flew the plane into the ground.
Same thing happened to the student in my BOQ, except he was the pilot.
I did not share my faith with any of those men.
I work part time at a high end outdoor store. One of the men for whom I have been concerned quit today. He will return to his home state tomorrow. I have been working at getting closer to him. I have not shared my faith with him either.
Men who were in my sphere of influence with whom I failed to share.
There are those around us daily who need to know the Lord. While we are working out how to approach them, they can be fatally injured. I have hesitated. With the result that with these four men I lost the opportunity. The first three permanently. There still may be a chance with the fourth, small, but a chance.
Do not hesitate.
