Real Veterans on Veteran’s Day
It’s the middle of the day on Veteran’s Day 2018, and not too late, I hope, to share a few words from some real veterans, and heroes.
There is little need to comment any further on any of these words, impressive reflections of wisdom, and profoundly relevant to today’s world. All came from highly decorated American generals:
This world of ours… must avoid becoming a community of dreadful fear and hate, and be, instead, a proud confederation of mutual trust and respect. Dwight D. Eisenhower, American general and 34th President
Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But, if you must be without one, be without strategy. Norman Scwhartzkopf, American general
Moral courage is the most valuable and usually the most absent characteristic in men. George S. Patton, American general
The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war. Douglas MacArthur, American general
