Talking Tuesday

Some of my favorite Military quotes:

"This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave." ~Elmer Davis



"Build me a son, O Lord, who will be strong enough to know when he is weak, and brave enough to face himself when he is afraid, one who will be proud and unbending in honest defeat, and humble and gentle in victory." ~Douglas MacArthur


"Fall seven times, stand up eight." ~Japanese Proverb



Your turn...........
