Veteran’s Day 2010

“We, the willing, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much with so little for so long, that we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.”

-Unknown, but probably a soldier, definitely not Mother Theresa…

To all the vets and to those who still serve: Although we may have been at times exploited, misused, and/or accidentally or purposefully manipulated by those who lead us, to sometimes bring to bear the force of American might upon those who may or may not be guilty, remember that we all volunteered. And if it comes to light that our leaders have used that mighty force for things other than the altruistic plight of protecting those who find other means to support their fellow Americans as civilians, we were never wrong. Regardless of political leanings, and in spite of fact or folly, our service is true, as our hearts are true to this great country. Our volunteerism is no less than pure sacrifice of selfless service to every man, woman, and child who calls this country home, and as such, we need not ask for praise or favor, only that those we serve, serve as well to preserve that for which we fight: the fundamentals of freedom, liberty, and justice for all.
