The true measure of the patriot is steadfastness.
We all have small moments of wanderlust in us, tearing off on solitary paths that others may not follow, testing limits, testing ourselves.
That is the nature of man.
Yet when we strive to hold true, to stand firm to our beliefs as free men, together, to carry our weapons and defend our land, the weak become strong, and the wandering hold together as one. For then we are united in something much greater than the elemental whims of man.
Together as patriots, we are much more of the courageous and less of the selfish, we are brothers in arms.
