Our Patriot’s Journey


Dear Mr. and Mrs. Wheat,
I’m sorry for not writing you much sooner about your son.  We at the Cadet Chapel are truly sorry for your loss.  I found his card in one of the pew bibles in the Protestant Chapel.  We have placed it in the Chapel Guide’s office where we can remember Robert and his sacrifice.  I look at his picture daily and pray for comfort for you and his family.  He was a handsome man and I’m sure not a day goes by that you don’t have tears in your eyes; I lost my own daughter nearly five years ago, so I truly do understand the hurt you feel.
God is in control of every aspect of all our lives and everything that happens, so this was not a random thing, but God actually called Robert to be with Him.  You could say that Robert won the race.
With sincere best regards,
Mark A. Firks, GS-04, Chapel Guide
