Greater love hath no man than this,
that a man lay down his life for his friends.

"The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, 
no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional as to how they perceive the veterans 
of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their Nation."
President George Washington

"There shall not be Peace until the Power of Love overcomes the Love of Power."
Latrine Wall, Pleiku, Vietnam, 1968

It is Understand That I Seek
For Once I Stood For Something
I Stood For You."
Nicholas James Weber
Poet Warrior

"He that doeth the will
of God abideth forever."
1 John 2:17

"A nation that does not honor it's heroes,
will not long endure."
Abraham Lincoln

Ask not what your country can do for you....
Ask what you can do for your country."
John F Kennedy
President - Jan. 20, 1961
