The “Colonel’s” VFV Motivational/Inspirational Quotes & Message of the Day & Week!
Good “R.E.D. Friday!” Morning “Band of Brothers & Sisters,” and all great connections. Welcome to the end of another week from the “Colonel’s Foxhole” in The Woodlands, TX — 7 January 2022!
Today’s Message is: “Fortitude Day!” Why Not?
“When faced with pain and adversity a great leader’s inner fortitude and strength will carry them forward. There are a lot of overwhelming examples of leaders today that don’t have fortitude. Leaders of today and the future, this is your day, so always practice what is good and be patient even when the odds are against you and you’re facing danger. Courage and fortitude under fire!" — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs
