~Rudyard Kipling, The Old Issue, 1899
To all Veterans who have fought to sercure America’s freedom – thank you!
You are the truest example of a hero.
They say that a boy mimicks his dad’s walk – I pray that it may be a heroe’s walk!
“Nothing makes a man more aware of his capabilities and of his limitations than those moments when he must push aside all the familiar defenses of ego and vanity, and accept reality by staring, with the fear that is normal to a man in combat, into the face of Death”
Major Robert S. Johnson, USAAF
“Fighting spirit one must have. Even if a man lacks some of the other qualifications, he can often make up for it in fighting spirit”
— Brigadier General Robin Olds, USA
“Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it”
“Be convinced that to be happy means to be free and that to be free means to be brave. Therefore do not take lightly the perils of war.”
