Meet my extraordinary cousin, Travis Reed, serving his country as a Navy Seahawk pilot. Almost from the womb, Travis wanted to fly and to serve God by serving his country. He enlisted in the Navy out of high school (Grace Christian Academy, Medford, Oregon where his parents serve as Christian school teachers) and then after more than two years of outstanding service was selected to go to officer training; he earned his degree at the University of San Diego, NROTC, was commissioned and went on to flight training. He has been an inspiration to my sons and family, and I wanted to share him with my readers. What a man of principle, courage, and conviction! Pray for his safety as he serves on board a carrier in faraway places, hovering between heaven and earth, and very much in harms way. "Those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not grow weary, they shall walk and not faint" (Isaiah 40). Continue being a beacon of light in a dark world, and don't grow weary, Travis, in doing good! Strength and Courage!
