THINK ABOUT SGT BARNES TODAY AND COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS. BELOW IS A NOTE ABOUT SELFLESSNESS.
Plutarch asked, “Why do the Spartans punish with a fine the warrior who loses his helmet or spear but punish with death the warrior who loses his shield?” Because helmet and spear are carried for the protection of the individual alone, but the shield protects every man in the line. The group comes before the individual. This tenet is central to the Warrior Ethos.
