“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Veteran's Day 2015

Today I say thank you.

- To the ones who went before me, setting the standard we still strive to uphold, and giving me a country where I may be free.

- To the ones who served beside me. Some of you taught and led me, some of you got dirty and tired along with me, and I had the privilege and honor to lead some of you. I wouldn't give up those years no matter what the cost.

- To those serving today, at home and far away, continuing a tradition of sacrifice, courage and honor over two centuries in the making.

Every veteran matters. No matter what your job, time of service, gender, role or anything else, each of you gave something of yourselves so that others could be safe.

Be proud my brothers and sisters. You have earned it.
