You got that right! I remember reading reports over the years of "massacres" and major casualties, but not often getting the reports of what's successful.

We've need to recognize our heroes, whether on the battlefield, on the streets of our cities, or on a ladder truck. Stories of bravery and sacrifice seem to be rarely celebrated. I aims to change that!
