The Honor of the Standard Bearer

By Dr. Jack E. Simon

Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places].

The world has always seemed to be a stage for war.  Tales of armed conflict fill written history.  The Korean War had ended shortly before my arrival on planet Earth.  Vietnam dragged on through my college graduation.  American troops have fought and died in Grenada, Somalia, and our current endeavors in Afghanistan and Iraq.  Regardless of the cause, it seems that there will always be conflict.

As we look back in history, we see one of the most powerful armies that ever walked the globe, The Roman Legions.  In those ancient days there were no radios, satellite cell phones, or laser guided bombs.  Discipline and order ruled the day.  This army conquered the known world using three basic tenants.

I’m not quitting

Despair & Troubling times in the KINGDOM… We old toons are the fabric of EVE. Every TITAN that goes down, some one has to rebuild..

In-Game I am ZyberDawg, and yes I was where you are NOW!!! I have given so much free-stuff and services to MANY ungrateful players but the JOY is in the GIVING, not receiving… that is the Answer you SEEK…

I served my country during the cold-war and saw many of my VETERANS fall… We are all HERO’S that get no recognition for what we DO!!!

We must endure and pick up The Honor of the Standard Bearer for if the FLAG falls so do we ALL!!! see link

Definitely a break is over due, reinforcements are lacking and we are about to be overrun, as long as the FLAG waves there is HOPE…

I refer you to the Broken Arrow: Trailer (1996) see link

Something to think about while you are away..


I am not quitting EVE. I just want to put that little rumor to rest. Nor did the alliance ‘fall apart’. It is a very undramatic story, really.

This is how it happened. One night, I was exchanging EVE mails with someone in alliance I did not know. He asked if I was the one who did the logistics for alliance. I replied yes. He asked if I was trustworthy. I found that a little appalling, being that I was the alliance executor and that I moved all the things. For free. I told him it was EVE, you couldn’t be sure that you could trust anyone, but that I would move his stuff, for free. Just make the contract to my alt- no collateral.

Now, the reason we did no collateral is because I moved many a contract per night and I simply couldn’t afford collateral on all of it.
