"Any man who may be asked in this century what he did
to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond
with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:
'I served in the United States Navy.'"

John F. Kennedy
(Remarks at the United States Naval Academy, August 1, 1963)

13 October 1775........

A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including my life." That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.......   Author Unknown
