That said, sadly you are at least partially correct...such men are very, very few and far between. But they ARE out there, and that's a comforting thought.
Point well taken (by myself, at any rate). The one thing I truly admire about both Mr Stewart, and Mr Tillman....both men (as was pointed out) left their chosen profession, and apparently, at the pinnacle of their respective career, entered the military service at the pay grade of E-1. THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is public service.
