Hero Week Review 1
Preparing the Hero stories each day, there’s always a theme in their Memorials that comes through: These warriors loved adventure, pushed the limits, wanted to experience life, and would rather take the winding path than the paved road. All of them, when reflected upon by others, lived with a certain tolerance for risk. That’s how you honored them last week. Fitting!
In fact, that’s why we come to CF. The risk, the pushing of the envelope, the “adventure” if you will.
“Our Country won’t go on forever, if we stay soft as we are now. There won’t
be any AMERICA…!” – Lt. Gen. Lewis B. “Chesty” Puller, USMC
So last week was an awesome tribute week. Each class was a bit more subdued in attitude maybe, a tad bit more serious, reflective…even dignified…as we thought about sacrifice and remembered these soldiers who volunteered to put themselves in harm’s way.
CFers, true to form, demonstrated a classic CF tagline: “At our best when we’re at our worst.” Going to physical and mental places few dare visit, asking the question, “When things go bad, will I run for a safe bubble or dig in my heels?”…you never know until to you take a peek.
Perhaps to lighten the mood, getting the gears cranking for a stellar Fall at CF, we’ll start the Hero Week Reviews with our tradional “Feelin’ Bad” series. To you CFers…
