We were undergoing server maintenance during Veterans Day. As Our first post followng resumption of service, nothing could be better than these words:
'The soldier is the army. No army is better than its soldiers. The soldier is also a citizen. In fact, the highest obligation and privilege of citizenship is that of bearing arms for one's country. Hence it is a proud privilege to be a soldier — a good soldier. To be a soldier a man must have discipline, self—respect, pride in his unit and in his country, a high sense of duty and obligation to his comrades and to his superiors, and self—confidence born of demonstrated ability." —— General George S. Patton, Jr.
