"Sometimes the greatest compliment is to be rejected by certain people."--Retired Marine Dr. John Jack Fowler on why the scorn he received from some Americans for fighting in Vietnam when he returned home didn't really bother him.AMEN TO THAT!!!!Teach this to your teens! It is an attitude that can be extrapolated to all sorts of circumstances and to the Christian life.
Here's a couple of more,When I was in The Marine Corps one of our motto's was "God, Country and Corps" Notice the priority.When during my tours in Iraq with the Army one of the phrases we used is "Mission First"Also the overal Emphasis in the military is "others before yourself."Semper Fi !(Always Faithful)
That is cool; too bad our government doesn't hold to the same attitudes as our military men and women!
