Military service and human rights...

Quote: "Just so that we are absolutely clear, gentlemen...the military in general (and the Navy in particular...) is NOT a fucking democracy! You are here because you have chosen to defend and protect the rights and freedoms of this country's citizens. So briefly put, you are here to defend human are NOT here to enjoy them!" - Unquote. From my "Welcome aboard" speech, HMCS Fraser, Montreal, QC. - June 1976, while posted as athlete security for the Montreal Olympic Games.
