"If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity; it must be known, that we are at all times ready for war" -- George Washington, Fifth Annual Address to Congress, December 13, 1793

A few months ago a soldier named Vick called in to the the Neal Boortz radio talk show.  What he had to say is so typical of our troops that a recording of the conversation was placed on file.  Want to feel really proud of our troops?  Have a listen to this:  http://boortz.com/mp3/archive/040907_vick.mp3
