Best military sentiment heard

For all the hot air and silliness that accompanies such Presidential campaigns like the one we’re suffering through now, once in a while a gem is heard.  I caught this one during a Mike Huckabee (Rep-Arkansas) speech, and it’s one of the best I’ve heard in a long time (I’m going by memory since I don’t have the text of the speech on hand):

“A good soldier doesn’t fight because he hates those in front of him… he fights because he loves the ones behind him.”

Well said.

  1. J.D.,

    I thought there was no crying in politics. Seems if you do, you win a primary.🙂

    Hope all is well.

  2. Ha ha, Steve – indeed!

    Just when you think the races can’t get any sillier than the previous one, you get surprised. And we probably haven’t seen anything yet – I can only imagine what will be going on post-convention.

    The side show on both sides is just starting to make appearances here in NJ. I only hope they have to pay tolls while driving around the Garden State.🙂
