In honor of Scott W. Salyers, born on November 18, 1954 in Battle Creek, Michigan. Scott entered eternal life at age 62 on August 26, 2017. An officer in the US Army who retired as a Colonel after 30 years of service, followed by 10 additional years at DIA. He is survived by his wife Brigitte Salyers in Fairfax Station, VA. Scott was great man & a good friend who loved his God, his wife, his friends & his country - in that order. It was an honor & a privilege to have known him. Now he has "Gone to be with Jesus" but I will see him again someday in glory because of what Jesus did for us through His life, His death & His resurrection!

C.Carl Pilgrim, my father, wounded and lost leg to amputation, on last battle of Korean War - OP Harry, as a platoon sergeant in 64th Armor is worthy of remberance on Memorial Day. Surviving the war he lived a life of service and duty to God, his family, and America. It is my greatest honor to be called his son.
God Bless America and may God be merciful in His judgment.

George Meaders was a key person in the ministry of Spring Canyon. I felt that honoring him would be especially appropriate since he gave us so much.

We have donated to OCF in honor of our two sons that are at two separate academies and the OCF program keeps them both grounded. This has been a blessing to them and a comfort to us to know that spiritually they are being fed while at the academies. After seeing how much OCF has blessed our family and taken care of two of our sons so well, my husband and I decided to split our tithing while they are in the academies between our church and these two ministries. I can't think of anything more worthwhile.

I contributed to honor my classmates (USMA ’65) who were killed in Vietnam. I was at best a cultural Christian during my Vietnam service (1968-69), filled with a vague benevolence and the silly notion that I could probably slip into the afterlife with a low pass…not the rottenest apple in the barrel. I did not know Jesus as the Christ and had no clue of personal salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. As I think back to those fine men and fine soldiers who were killed, I wonder where they were in their faith journeys. Probably not much different than me. And I pray that our Lord will recognize that we "knew not what we did" (to slightly misquote) and be gracious to them…and forgive me my own failings toward them and toward Him.
