The only thing that makes battle tolerable is the brotherhood among soldiers.
The soldier is the Army. No army is better than its soldiers. The Soldier is also a citizen. In fact, the highest obligation and privilege of citizenship is that of bearing arms for one’s country.
George S. Patton Jr.
We sleep peaceably in our beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on our behalf.
I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And 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 (military).
John F. Kennedy
Listen up – there’s no war that will end all wars.
Only the dead have seen the end of war.
Heroism doesn’t always happen in a burst of glory. Sometimes small triumphs and large hearts change the course of history.
This country has not seen and probably will never know the true level of sacrifice of our veterans. As a civilian, I owe an unpayable debt to all our military. Going forward let’s not send our servicemen and women off to war or conflict zones unless it is overwhelmingly justifiable and on moral high ground.
Thomas M Smith
Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Soldiers can sometimes make decisions that are smarter than the orders they’ve been given.
Orson Scott Card
