"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."

The rules of the game.

Make sure you know the rules of the game before you play.

There is nothing worse than learning the rules of a game as you play.

No quicker way to to get cleaned out before the stakes in the game get to be worth it. UNDERSTAND THE CAPABILITY. Respect it and plan for it. The old saying still applies: Fail to plan plan to fail. Or in this case fail to plan plan to die.

Rule One. Play to win.

Rule Two. See Rule One.

Rule Three. Change happens. Semper Gumby.

Improvise. Adapt and Overcome. Self Reliance and Teamwork. It's going to take it all to play and win.
