Be a man of principle. Fight for what you believe in. Keep your word. Live with integrity. Be brave. Believe in something bigger than yourself. Serve your country.
Teach. Mentor. Give something back to society. Lead from the front. Conquer your fears. Be a good friend. Be humble and be self-confident.
... Appreciate your friends and family. Be a leader and not a follower. Be valorous on the field of battle. And take responsibility for your actions.
Never forget those that were killed. And never let rest those that killed them.
-Maj. Doug Zembiec, KIA, Iraq 2007

"Ok, so in spending 3 years of vetting, another 90 days will be that big of a deal? Remember, we're dealing specifically with countries that are NOT cooperating with the vetting process. Personally, I'd prefer we waited longer and had a…"
"What Obama did was a slow down, not a pause, and certainly not a "ban". There were still people coming in while the "slow down" was in effect. No one spent 3 years going through the process, only to be told during the…"
