Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the sovereign Lord. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?

-Ezekial 19:23

Quote of the Day 2009-4-7

There had been many brave men in the ranks, but they were learning that bravery of itself has little to do with success in battle. On line, most normal men are afraid, have been afraid, or will be afraid. Only when disciplined to obey orders quickly and willingly, can such fear be controlled. Only when superbly trained and conditioned against the shattering experience of war, only knowing almost from rote what to do, can men carry out their tasks come what may. And knowing they are disciplined, trained, and conditioned brings pride to men – pride in their own toughness, their own ability; and this pride will hold them true when all else fails.

-TR Fehrenbach

Quote of the Day 2009-4-4

Pressure? Let me just say that Rambo is the best combat vet I’ve ever seen. A pure fighting machine with only a desire – to win a war that someone else lost. And if winning means he has to die – he’ll die. No fear, no regrets. And one more thing, what you choose to call hell, he calls home.

-Colonel Trautman, Rambo: First Blood Part II
