The Reason We Fought

I was once asked why I volunteered to go into the Army.

After thinking about it for a moment,

I gave this answer: Sir, nothing in this country

should ever come free to anyone. Somebody’s got to pay for it,

either in taxes or some other way, and sometimes

even with some giving up our lives. Me, I would have given my life

for it, but you see it isn’t up to us. It’s up to our Lord who lives or dies.
