By requiring all 30 million Americans age 18 to 25 to perform two years of national service, in the military or civilian life, we will be asking for a shared sacrifice from all American citizens.
You know, rural Americans are a special people. Their labor puts food on our table and fuel in our gas tanks. Their service in our military sets a powerful example of leadership, honor and sacrifice. Their spirit of community inspires us all.
Military families so much appreciate the love, support and prayers.
Great achievement is usually born of great sacrifice, and is never the result of selfishness.
Service ist kein Selbstzweck.
Service to society is the rent we pay for living on this planet.
