"The gods of the valley are not the gods of the hills, and you shall understand it"...Ethan Allen

"We in this room are all men who believe that actions speak louder then words. If I can impart anything from my life as a soldier it is this: There are only two types of warrior in this world. Those that serve tyrants and those that serve free men. I have chosen to serve free men, and if we as warriors serve free men, we must love freedom more than we love our own lives. It is a simple philosophy but one that has served me well in life."

--SFC Stefan Mazak, KIA 18 April 1968, Long Khanh Province, RSV

A great resource for everyone

"I am not a tinfoil wearing, black helicopter watching paranoid type. I am not a member of an organized “militia group” that sits around and bitches about the government and calls every other person Colonel. I do not advocate the overthrow of the US Government, armed insurrection, racism or any illegal activity. I am a member of “the militia” only in the sense that the founding fathers meant it, to include every single able-bodied man." - Webmaster at Every Citizen a Soldier.
