I offer a gift of words, an affirmation of who you are and who you will become I see you, your uniform fits as though you were born wearing it You are a soldier through and through. Proud. Solitairy. Alone. A wall between you and everyone else, but it protects you, makes you strong It is that strength that people are drawn to. It is why you lead and others follow without question … Remember these words when doubt descends, Commander.
