I don't know if that's Michael Lorrey's opinion, but it is my opinion, based on
my own experience in the military. Truly brave men and women are truly rare, and
that includes the military population. I wouldn't have it any other way, because
it's better to have cowards with their fingers on the nuclear trigger than to
have cowboys (cowgirls too I suppose) with itchy trigger fingers.
