A good man will rise and battle with adversity; while a great man will rise, but is never willing to compromise his integrity even if it means he loses the battle. It is the war, not the battle. It is the race, not the sprint. It is the entire game, not just the minutes.
Not too long ago, I had a little run in with integrity. For many years, I have had a dream, a very noble dream, if I might say so. I have always wanted to serve my nation, to give back to my country by serving in the military.
