Quote of the Day

“The name of the game is to make it a motivator and make it work for you. It certainly heightens your senses and makes you incredibly aware and observant. When you step back and reflect, [you find that] rather than let the emotion over power you and dictate to you, you have to figure out a way to make it work the other way around.”

-Medal of Honor recipient Brian M. Thacker in reference to how one must handle fear while in battle in order to be an effective soldier. Mr. Thacker was a 1st Lieutenant in the Army when he earned his actions on March 31, 1971 in Vietnam.
