"Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime." I agree wholeheartedly that it is the dedication of a lifetime that defines true patriotism. You all have given not only your time, dedication and effort, but—most importantly—your very being to the protection and advancement of this great country. You work tirelessly for the rights of the veterans who serve our country, while conducting the nation’s finest civic training to instill young future leaders with the knowledge, understanding and wisdom to govern this country.
Ask NOT what your country can do for you, rather what you can do for your country.
I may not always believe in and trust our government, but I will ALWAYS believe and trust the American Soldier. You have taken a sacred oath to protect the many FREEDOMS that so many of us take for granted. Please understand that I am grateful for your sacrifice(s) and your service on my behalf. It is an honor to call you "My Countrymen".
