"And many Americans yet accept that in the last analysis it is a man's duty to be the defender and protector of his wife and children."
Amen and amen, say I. I include defense of the weak and helpless in that duty. As a soldier for over twenty years I and my fellows felt it our duty to protect our fellow citizens from those who threatened us. As an armed military retiree, I and thousands like me continue to meet our duty to protect those we love and the weak and helpless around us. Duty, honor and country are the three most sublime words in the English vocabulary.
