Martial Values

Most people have at least a passing familiarity with Alexandre Dumas' "The Three Musketeers".

Most people are aware of their slogan, "All for one.  One for all."

Lots of us veterans get it.  There are some civilians too.

If you don't already understand what I am prattling on about, think hard about what it says.

It's about loyalty and sacrifice and those being blank checks.

I always think about it when I read an entirely different book which contains a similar message.

Shines the name, indeed.
