"While I was stationed at Fort Belvoir, Virginia my wife and I visited the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, DC. We struck up a conversation with a retired Sergeant Major that had lost the lower part of one leg in Vietnam. As our talk wound down and we were about to leave, he thanked me for my service to our country. It knocked me flat. Here was a man who had made such a great sacrifice in service to his country thanking me. I was in my 13th year of my career and had never fired at an actual enemy in combat. That's when I learned what 'Love of Country' really meant."
