Retired Command Sgt. Maj. and Medal of Honor recipient Gary L. Littrell quote
Retired Command Sgt. Maj. and Medal of Honor recipient Gary L. Littrell, March 22, referring to his visits with Soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan over the last two years. He likes to ask them if they know why they are serving and fighting.

I get a stern look. They look at me and they say: 'sergeant major, I am here because I am fighting this war on terrorism on their land and in their country to keep them from bringing it back to ours.'
