Image Quotes about Veteran




Bob Lilly - He was a rare one: only 5 feet 7 inches tall, a lawyer and a combat veteran of the Korean War as a Marine officer. Eddie came from Washington in a trade in 1960 and ran the team in the first years while Don Meredith was learning. He was such a fantastic ball handler that even with sorry protection and the defensive line crashing in on him he threw a lot of beautiful long passes. The ball would fly out of the crowd like a mortar shell and sail 50 yards downfield. Eddie did everything by the numbers. If the receiver wasn't there, we knew whose fault it was.

Claire Danes - [When she initially read the script, Danes was amazed that Martin, a 30-year show-business veteran, could so clearly recall the particulars of his salad days.] Steve was great in establishing those details, ... He's really exact, even with the numbers. We learned how much [Mirabelle] owes, exactly, and what she has to pay off, and you know she has $4 every day to buy her sandwich. This seemingly petty stuff can really impact a person's experience.

David Miller - My son is a U.S. Marine, an Iraqi veteran, and my hero. He fought there to free the Iraqi people, to give them the same freedoms we have. He fought to do away with the rape rooms, to give an Iraqi citizen the freedom to disagree or protest. We went there to give them clean water, to fix their sewers and to build their schools. We went there to give these people a chance at a better quality of life. We need to stay there until the job is done or they ask us to leave. We are in Iraq because we need to be and because it is the right thing to do.
