“True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.” – Arthur Ashe, 1943 – 1993
“I cherish the memories of a question my grandson asked me the other day when he said, ‘Grandpa, were you a hero in the war?’ Grandpa said ‘No, but I served in a company of heroes.'” – Written by Sergeant Mike Ranney in a letter to Major Richard D. Winters, Band of Brothers
