It is a statement so many times heard – especially from those who have served.
As a member of America’s armed forces, your job is to never question authority.
Your duty as an American citizen is to regularly question and challenge the powers of government, so as to ensure the liberties of future generations.

"Here in America we are descended in blood and in spirit from revolutionaries and rebels- men and women who dared to dissent from accepted doctrine. As their heirs, may we never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion." - Dwight D. Eisenhower
