"As we drove in this morning, and we came up the flag draped road over the rolling hills, I could see the white headstones on the hills behind us... and they served as somber reminders that our Nation is at War, and that in our profession of arms, the ledgers are kept in neat white rows... and they stir in all of us in uniform a commitment, a resolve, to honor them with the best that we have each day."

"Everything that I am today is a result of great noncommissioned officers like SGM McBryar and CSM Smith who took the time to train and mentor me over the years. Sir Isaac Newton is attributed as saying "If I have seen farther it is by standing on the shoulders of giants." Our achievements are based on the work of others... We see farther because of them. We certainly see farther... and serve in a more professional Army today because of the service of SGM William McBryar and CSM Larry Smith. "
