To all of my brothers and sisters in arms, those of you who have stood the watch and patrolled the dark and dangerous corners of the world:
Be proud of who you are and the uniform you wear.
Hold your head high, hold your honor dear, be true to your oath.
Stand steadfast by your duty even when there is no one to see.
Follow those who lead, and lead those who will follow.
Leave no one behind.
Remember the fallen. Always.
Thank you for your service and your sacrifice on this day, and every other.
//Jim Wright, Chief Warrant Officer, United States Navy (Retired).
