On This #VeteransDay2017.....

The Team at the Daily Outsider decided to be dark in honor of Veterans Day W-End.   As I have been assessing overnight developments, what struck me especially was President Eisehnower's admonition on War as Saudi Arabia continues to bomb Yemen, the Taliban wreck havoc in Afghanistan and other parts of the World continue to be consumed by Conflict--truly challenging times.

I salute all Veterans for their selfless sacrifice as it is my honor to share this compilation of Thoughts Thanks to +Jonathan Huie  that is a must read for us all here at the Daily Outsider.

Happy Veterans Day....

Duty, Honor, Country.
Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be,
what you can be, what you will be.
- Douglas MacArthur

Pessimism never won any battle.
- Dwight D. Eisenhower

If we take the generally accepted definition of bravery
as a quality which knows no fear, I have never seen a brave man.
All men are frightened. The more intelligent they are,
the more they are frightened.
- George S. Patton

Disarmament, with mutual honor and confidence,
is a continuing imperative.
- Dwight D. Eisenhower

Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers,
who can cut through argument, debate, and doubt
to offer a solution everybody can understand.
- Colin Powell

The soldier above all others prays for peace,
for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the
deepest wounds and scars of war.
- Douglas MacArthur

War settles nothing.
- Dwight D. Eisenhower
