Navy divers in Sri Lanka rushed to the scene when they heard an elephant was caught in the ocean current. The strong current swept the elephant out to see quickly. And you could see it was having trouble keeping it's head and trunk above water.
The rescue on camera was very intense and it kept me nervous for the poor animal until the end. The rescue took multiple boats and divers and over 12 hours to get the elephant to safety and back on land.
I'm so grateful this navy team didn't give up on such a sweet animal. Thank the Lord!
There are many sacrifices made by those in the Armed Forces, as well as by their families. Regardless of where you stand politically, the men and women who bravely serve our country are the ones literally putting their lives on the line so that we have the very freedom to choose a side and openly express our opinions. But unfortunately, these men and women don't always get the respect they deserve.
Take, for example, a recent encounter U.S. Navy Sailor Aaron Lesseski had when he happened to ask the cashier if they offered any discounts to military personnel.
We’ll let the Aaron’s Facebook post tell the rest of this heartwarming story:
Share his story as a message to all anti-military people that we will NEVER stop supporting our troops!
Watch as this military man becomes a soldier for Christ!
This little girl ignores military protocol for the BEST reason!
