Quote of the Day

“The first value that I share with you that I think is phenomenal is this notion of selfless service. Very simply putting the needs of others in front of yourself. The veterans in this audience know this. Your ranger buddy on your left, your right, your mate, your team squad, and the nation always come first. That’s it plain and simple, right there. There is no other thing. ‘I’ never enters into the equation. Other than: what can I do for this country?”

-Sergeant Matthew Eversmann at the American Veterans Center’s 2008 Conference. Sgt. Eversmann is a veteran of the Battle of Mogadishu and is portrayed in Black Hawk Down.
