Letter to My Son

I am a veteran. You can visit some of my work at

My youngest son was in the Navy. He wanted to be a SEAL so prior to him going to training I made him a gift. As part of that gift I wrote the following in a letter to him in June of 2007:

Remember that the enemies of freedom are all around.

Remember that you have assumed the greatest responsibility called for by the Constitution.

Remember that good men have gone before you, and laid down their lives to continue this great experiment.

Remember to uphold your oath to defend, and protect the Constitution of the United States until the Good Lord relieves you of that duty.

"My soul is in my keeping. When I stand before God, I will not say that virtue was not convenient at the moment."
