The “Colonel’s” VFV Motivational/Inspirational Quotes & Message of the Day and Week!


The “Colonel’s” VFV Motivational/Inspirational Quotes & Message of the Day and Week!


Good “R.E.D Friday!” Morning “Band of Brothers & Sisters,” and all great connections. Welcome to the end of another week from the “Eagle’s Nest” in The Woodlands, TX! — 8 October 2021!


Today’s Message is: “Fly Like an Eagle Day!” Why Not?

“In leadership there is a difference between a ‘duck’ and ‘eagle!’ Ducks just sit around and quack all the time, saying” ‘That’s the way we’ve always done it!’ Eagles on the other hand say, ‘There is nothing I can’t accomplish!’ They fly above the 'ducks' all day long. What are you an ‘eagle’ or a ‘duck? The choice is up to you!” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Now this is one I can relate to, yes that's me! But in defense of ducks we used to say it's hard to soar like an eagle when you fly with turkeys.

I can't call it an upgrade, because it really isn't. Every time I click on a link on someone's post and then hit the back arrow it gives me a message about there is not a link to it any more (not the exact words). It doesn't bring me back to notifications but back to the common screen. I am so disappointed in how poorly done the "upgrade" has been handled.

It would appear that way. Their unannounced update has really ticked off a large section of their user base. A number of functions have been lost or screwed up, not just points and badges.
