America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves. Abraham Lincoln

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power. Abraham Lincoln

Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm. Abraham Lincoln

The fastest way to a man's heart? Inch to the right of the breastbone, between the fourth and fifth rib.

That was an extremely well executed, low level, in-flight arrestment in the short field gear.  That approach and landing took one hell of a lot of finesse...

That's not just a flier, that's an AUS flier; that's characteristic AUS deadpan.
