06JUN2019 – Quote of the Day

A soft, easy life is not worth living, if it impairs the fibre of brain and heart and muscle. We must dare to be great; and we must realize that greatness is the fruit of toil and sacrifice and high courage… For us is the life of action, of strenuous performance of duty; let us live in the harness, striving mightily; let us rather run the risk of wearing out than rusting out.

Theodore Roosevelt

I couldn’t stand retirement after I left the Army. I’d found that retirement consists primarily of boredom. So I joined the SC State Guard Disaster Responders and went back to fighting floods and hurricanes like I did 50 yrs ago! The old war horse still hears the bugle call to CHARGE!

Zar Belk!
