While in Vietnam and in the aftermath, writing was a means of grace, and opened a window to my war-torn soul, one millimeter at a time.
SoulRanger.com is a tapestry woven with personal recollections of war and warriors, bound together with spiritual threads. It’s not an attempt to glorify war or even explain it. Rather, it is the story of a soldier’s arduous journey from the battlefield to the Rock and finding firm ground on which to plant his boots.
I am a veteran, but still a warrior in combat. Paul the Apostle describes this battle in the book of Ephesians. “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.“
Posts on the blog include contributions from fellow Rangers, Veterans, Soldiers and their families, and articles of interest from various writers and publications. Join the battle and send me your story.
With Gratitude, Bart Stamper
