    We do not find such men and women, they rise out of the ranks themselves and are distinguished by their actions. They grow from the children that we raise and in whom we have instilled patriotism and a sense of duty and of honor. They are often the sons and daughters of men and women who have, themselves, placed freedom and love of country above their own needs and their own lives. These young people have seen the examples set by their parents, siblings, aunts and uncles, and even grandparents and have, in their own turn, determined to achieve equally high standards of conduct and of honor.

    He will be in my prayers, Nurseflo. May God watch over him and protect him from all harm and bring him home safely to his mother's arms.
