To Remind Me of What True Courage Is

The reason I decided to buy my bracelet and specialize it the way I did was because it reminds me of what true courage is. I am a freshman at the United States Naval Academy and over the summer we had a speaker come in and tell us his story. He was a POW in a North Vietnamese prison for seven years, and he kept emphasizing the importance of duty to your country and your fellow soldiers. Basically his message to us was that in the face of danger, no matter what, you have to stay strong and never give up because the safety of your country comes first.
