A Soldier’s Mettle

Well this is interesting. It seems that a year ago today, someone I never met cited a quote from Papa Zulu in order to pay homage to veterans everywhere. And were it not for the fact that I entered this quote into my search engine to see if I really did write it myself (Goodreads said I did, but I myself was wondering!), I never would have known!

Thanks Maiden, and keep up the good work of honoring those who have fought so other wouldn’t have to, those who fell in the commission of that service, and those who came home forever changed.

“The true test of a soldier’s mettle is to see whether or not they will cling to what they believe in, even in the face of impending death.”
Matthew S. Williams
