spirit

Today, some of our Soldiers trained in the CS Gas Chamber. Breath was important. The word for “breath” and “spirit” is one-in-the-same in both the Jewish scriptures (“ruach”) and Christian scriptures (“pneuma”).

Breath. Spirit. The substance and very function of living.

From the word “spirit” we derive the words: inspire, conspire, respiratory, and esprit de corps.

Esprit de corps refers to a “feeling of devotion, loyalty, and enthusiasm in regards to a team or group.”

General George C. Marshall (WW2 Army Chief of Staff) stated, “Military power wins battles, but spiritual power wins wars.”

Our Soldiers’ spirit is an invaluable force multiplier. How can we nurture it?
