“Today, women are in combat, that is just a reality. Thousands of women have been decorated for valor…and have given their lives. Today, what was once a band of brothers has truly become a band of brothers and sisters.”
“If you don’t think you’re the best at what you do then no one else will either.”
“Don’t confuse believing in yourself with blustery overconfidence or conceit.”
General Ann Dunwoody – Former Commanding General of U.S. Army Materiel Command
The long gray line has never failed us.
Were you to do so, a million ghosts
in olive drab, in brown khaki,
in blue and gray,
would rise from their white crosses, thundering those magic words:
Duty, Honor, Country.
“And like the old Soldier in that ballad, I now close my military career and just fade away, an old Soldier who tried to do his duty as God gave him the sight to see that duty.”
General Douglas MacArthur’s farewell address at West Point
“What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and it forever.”
“What you leave behind is not what is engraved on stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.”
