My husband is a former Air Force pilot and my son is an active duty Army surgeon, recently returned from Iraq, so my pride in our military is passionate... and personal.
I am now the target of the most powerful man in this country, with an army of aides whose major responsibility today seems to be to attack me and get rid of me.
It is tragic that the Fuehrer should have the whole nation behind him with the single exception of the Army generals. In my opinion it is only by action that they can now atone for their faults of lack of character and discipline.
In this respect I expressed my doubts about using the Corps directly on the South coast, to form a bridgehead for the Army - as the area immediately behind the coast was now covered with obstacles. These doubts were accepted by Hitler.
The left-wing thinkers and intellectuals have been more misogynist with me than the army. They can't accept that a young woman is able to think, and they underestimate the intellectual work and study I might have done. They ask who is the man behind me.
The American Army has supplied, assigned a very capable man to me, to help me, bring me to military justice. I don't think I need no civilians. All I want to do is clear myself with the American Army.
First it was football, then basketball. I still think about going back to college and playing basketball. Another romantic thing was that I wanted to join the Army, but it was only because I loved the uniforms.
I was born in East Germany, before the wall came down. We sort of escaped, I guess. I grew up all over the place. Germany, London, back and forth between Minnesota and Germany. I was sort of an army brat, but not in the army.
Israel has a fantastic film industry, and many times we are known for our political films or films that have to do with the army. I love the fact that we can show that there are films coming out of Israel that are just for fun.
If I wanted to be Rimbaud, what was I doing in graduate school? Trying to stay out of the army, of course. Graduate study gave me a draft deferment. But I also knew I lacked erudition and polish and was often sunk in forlorn reveries.
My position in the army is as sport instructor. This allows me generous time off for travel and competition. I also receive a monthly salary from the army.
The army did what Milosevic's regime asked of it, which was to create a 'Greater Serbia'.
The International Brigades provided a shock force while the Republic trained and organized an army from an assemblage of individuals. The Spanish people knew they were not fighting alone.
The things I learned from the army - and I think it was a lesson for life - was how to work in unison with other people. How to take responsibility.
I spent four years in the United States Army between 1985 and 1989, and I certainly learned how to survive out in the woods.
My parents were both in the army for 20 years and then worked in government departments; but they had gone through the Great Depression and known lean times. They always remained extremely frugal and lived far below their means.
I was lucky enough myself to have been in Dad's Army for an episode.
Over all our happy country - over all our Nation spread, Is a band of noble heroes - is our Army of the Dead.
Why would it be ridiculous that Quebec has an army?
It won't be a question of how well-trained or well-equipped the army is but one of the authority it serves.
