Understand that you are the heir to America’s legacy of heroes, whether your family has
been here since the Mayflower or since Monday. We are the people who bashed in the Brits’ bad teeth, who took Texas and California and conquered the West, who fought at San Juan Hill, Saint-Mihiel, Normandy, Iwo Jima, the Chosin Reservoir, Khe Sanh, and 73 Easting. Americans kick ass. We take names. That is your legacy. Arm yourself. Become proficient with your weapons. You just might need them.
