“You have enemies? Good.That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life” – Winston Churchill
Winston Churchill remarked on heroism: “Never in the field of human conflict has so much been owed by so many to so few.”

Winston Churchill: “Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”
I’ve been doing some research and found this among the WW II archives. If you didn’t know Churchill, despite a rather challenging time in his youth with delivering everyday speech, became one of the most memorable speakers and statesmen.
He like Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Dwight D. Eisenhower, were great leaders at the time. It’s sad we have few to none today of such caliber. Those who might be ascending to the leadership roles are tormented and torn down for their character and ethics.

I read recently a bit about the passing of the 2d Sgt Major of the US Army, George W. Dunaway.
The posting included the following words:
“You ask; What is our policy? I will say; “It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us: to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy.” You ask; What is our aim? I can answer with one word: Victory—victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory there is no survival.” -Winston Churchill
