History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid.   Dwight D. Eisenhower

Had a great day attending a seminar by Lieutenant Colonel Dave Grossman. The seminar was “The Bulletproof Mind: Mental Preparation for Combat.” If you ever get a chance to hear him speak in person take it, he was passionate, articulate, funny and serious; the knowledge he imparted was second to none in wisdom for helping understand this screwed up world. He has put into words some of how I view myself, and I got him to sign my statement that I reference in my post A Man Should Know Who He Is. I now have that copy of my statement framed.
