Now from my understanding, this is quite common. My question is, do you have any tips for writing your own letter of recommendation? Also, are there any active duty or retired members of the Armed Services that have any tips as to what the military is seeking in a…See More

Quote
"If we look to the answer as to why for so many years we achieved so much, prospered as no other people on earth, it was because here in this land we unleashed the energy and individual genius of man to a greater extent than has ever been done before. Freedom and the dignity of the individual have been more available and assured here than in any other place on earth. The price for this freedom at times has been high, but we have never been unwilling to pay the price."
-Ronalnd Reagan, 1981

Required Reading

There's a similar thread right now but it's bizarre and spammy. So. What, in your opinion, is required reading to be part of the human race? What is absolutely essential, whether it be philosophy, history, religion, or even classic fiction or poetry?See More
