It doesn’t matter how you slice it or dice it, those are three chilling words for many people involved with the Armed Services.

It is easy to poke fun at life, it is much harder to embrace all of it. I am proud of every man and woman that gets up each day, puts on the uniform, and knows that today could be the last day on this earth.
