THINGS WE LEARN: From Rant and Rave

"...the best training comes from the most honest and ruthless people on planet Earth. They won't pamper you and provide pillows to make you comfy. What they'll do is push you to the edge until you learn how to hold on and stand your ground. They'll force you to squeeze out every (goddamn) juice of intellect from your brain. In the process, you learn patience, perseverance, control, and discipline. In the middle, you learn how to navigate your way through people and do it with unwavering dignity. You earn respect." ~Rant and Rave

"The toughest marines are trained by the most unkind commanders." ~Rant and Rave
