Warriors... In Their Own Words

Pantano At War

Our mission is to honor our warriors

Warriors in their own words.  This is a presentation outlining a project to highlight the brave men and women who spend their lives protecting our freedoms.

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse.  A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight; nothing he cares about more than his own personal safety; is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." --John Stuart Mill

We have always had warriors, from as far back in history as one can go - warriors are timeless.

Warriors have a moral code and are not simply trained killers (as they are all too frequently portrayed).

If we did not have warriors, we would undoubtedly be speaking another language: German, Japanese, Chinese, or Russian.

Warriors are born, they are not created.  Certainly they are trained, but to be a warrior is a calling.

We should be forever grateful to our warriors and to their families who are all so courageous.

We should honor our warriors.

Warriors are NOT, as they are commonly portrayed, hapless victims with nowhere else to go but the military.

This project will show people what intelligent, honorable, and brave people we have standing in the way of the free world's demise.

Go for it Kelsey, I hope you can do it. Yes it is an untapped resource. I hope they just don't do to him what was done to Oliver North.

Even though I am not American... I am Australian... I have always been in awe of all of our warriors both your's and mine... I have met many Marines and I was amazed by their dedication love devotion to their country... Without them and that feeling of their calling where would we be in this time... Anyone who puts their own life on the line to protect the lives of others should always be honoured... I have ordered the movie Warriors and I cannot wait to have it and watch it... I am sure I will be once again moved by these amazing courageous born warriors...
