There are no extraordinary men...just extraordinary circumstances that ordinary men are forced to deal with.
~ Admiral William Frederick Halsey Jr. (Bull) (October 30, 1882 - August 16, 1959)
Our country! In her intercourse with foreign nations, may she always be in the right; but our country, right or wrong
~ Stephen Decatur (January 05, 1779 - March 22, 1820)
