President George Washington, the Military Man

George Washington was once a military man.
He understood the importance of a military command.
George Washington served in the French Revolutionary War, under General Braddock.
Braddock got shot and later died.
Washington took charge.
Twenty six officers died in battle.
Washington was never rattled.
He humbly kneeled down being the chaplain.
He didn’t complain.
Washington was the only officer that walked away that day unharmed.
The Indians thought he wore a magical charm.
For that day it would later be revealed.
Explained,
Not to be concealed.
When he took off his jacket he had four holes all the way through it.
Not feeling a single hit.
He later learned by the chief that he wasn’t hit four times that day.
But seventeen times.
The chief said he never missed a shot before.
Washington knew what to say.
I have only been an instrument in the hands’ of Providence.
Feeling Divine consciousness,
The Indian Chief said.
He thought he had the protection of the Great Spirit.
I come to pay home-age to the man who is the particular favorite of Heaven, and can never die in battle.
Twenty years later.
He became the first president of the United States of America.
