Thanks to our Military -- and to hell with the ISG

I have the pleasure and honor to know many active-duty and retired military men and women. The quote below aptly represents, to a man, the attitude and spirit of each and every one of them. Too often we forget to say "thank you".

"I am not influenced by the expectation of promotion or
pecuniary reward. I wish to be useful, and every kind of
service necessary
for the public good, become honorable
by being necessary."

-- Nathan Hale (remark to Captain William Hull, who
had attempted
to dissuade him from volunteering for
a spy mission for General
Washington, September 1776)
