    Neat, Ody ...

    Even though a fictional speech from Henry V, the sentiments still hold meaning to this day.

    That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
    Let him depart; his passport shall be made,
    And crowns for convoy put into his purse;
    We would not die in that man's company
    That fears his fellowship to die with us.


    And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
    Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
    And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
    That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.
    Once again, a fitting post to honor this day. (Must admit, that I am an "Army Brat" born in a Military Hospital during WW2 ... so all you military guys, like my wonderful dad was, are special to me!)

    Thanks for everything, and outta here! ... :o
