Army Chief of Staff Peter J. Schoomaker quote
Army Chief of Staff Peter J. Schoomaker, at the Pentagon Hall of Heroes Feb. 27, where Lt. Col. Bruce Crandall was inducted one day after President Bush presented him the Medal of Honor for heroism in Vietnam.

The words of the Warrior Ethos that we have today - 'I will always place the mission first; I will never accept defeat; I will never quit; and I will never leave a fallen comrade' - were made real that day in the Ia Drang Valley.
