Smile, Warrior

Then out spake brave Horatius,
 
The Captain of the Gate:
 
“To every man upon this earth
 
Death cometh soon or late.
 
And how can man die better
 
Than facing fearful odds,
 
For the ashes of his fathers,
 
And the temples of his gods?
-Thomas Babbington Macaulay
Happy Veterans Day, and thank you.
