Colonel Wilson had an unusual name. He may have had a grandfather namesake who was a colonel at one time. When he joined the military and was introduced to his superior officer he said, saluting, "Major Evans, Colonel Wilson reporting, sir!" "If you are a colonel, Wilson, I should be saluting you." "No, Sir, you don't understand, I'm a private but my name is Colonel. Then are you correcting a superior officer, private? "Yes, Sir, I guess I am." "You're busted, private, I don't care if you are a Colonel!" And so began inauspiciously there, the dubious and utterly forgettable military career of Private Colonel Wilson.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
