25 May

 

The Memorial Day Weekend should give folk the opportunity to reflect on the bravery of our men and women in the military. It is this bravery that allows us to enjoy the freedoms many of us take for granted. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is the bravery of our men and women in the military.

Sun Tzu

When soldiers have been baptized in the fire of a battle-field, they have all one rank in my eyes.
Napoleon Bonaparte

Ten soldiers wisely led will beat a hundred without a head.
Euripides

Soldiers generally win battles; generals get credit for them.
Napoleon Bonaparte
