A call to veterans

The article A Charge to Veterans No Longer In Uniform is a reminder to all veterans – from many years ago to today – that we should continue to serve, even in our civvies. (I should mention that a great veterans group The Mission Continues posted it on Facebook – which is where I found it.)

The article highlights a letter written by General Jonathan Wainwright sent to Soldiers discharged from the military, following their service in World War II.
I personally love this quote:

“Start being a leader as soon as you put on your civilian clothes. If you see intolerance and hate, speak out against them. Make your individual voices heard, not for selfish things, but for honor and decency among men, for the rights of all people.”

How do you make your voice heard? How do you lead? How do you continue your call to serve?
