Veterans Day 2011

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
–John Stewart Mill–

Army: A body of men assembled to rectify the mistakes of the diplomats.
–Josephus Daniels–

People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
–George Orwell–

Hard pressed on my right. My center is yielding. Impossible to maneuver. Situation excellent. I am attacking.
–Ferdinand Foch– at the Battle of the Marne

    Though I thanked you elsewhere, I know you would never toot your own horn, so thanks so much for your service Nate.
