“It wasn't the reward that mattered or the recognition you might harvest. It was your depth of commitment, your quality of service, the product of your devotion–these were the things that counted in a life. When you gave purely, the honor came in the giving, and that was honor enough.”
— Capt. USAF (Ret), Scott O'Grady
