Several months ago I was delivering a speech to a group of patriots in our nation’s capital when I suddenly became ill and collapsed.
The following day, as I was recovering in the cardiac wing of a nearby hospital, I received a visitor – Col. John Teichert, then the commander at Joint Base Andrews.
I was a bit puzzled and surprised to see someone of Col. Teichert’s stature standing in my hospital room – seeing how I did not know the man.
It turned out a mutual friend, a pastor in California, had summoned the colonel to my bedside. And for a little while he prayed for me and shared his testimony along with several encouraging passages from the Bible.
I was particularly moved by the colonel’s kindness and his compassion – a brother in the Lord who took time out of his very busy schedule to pray at the bedside of a stranger.
So you can imagine my surprise when I received a press release from the Military Religious Freedom Foundation calling for the arrest of now Brigadier General Teichert – the new wing commander at Edwards Air Force Base in California.
