Check out the article on National Review Online by former FIRE President David French on why he decided to sign up for the Army Reserve:
I now know the answer to a question I think my children may ask one day: “Dad, what did you do in the war?” I don’t know that I’ll have any tales worth telling, and I certainly know that my own service will be a pale shadow compared to the tremendous courage shown by so many, but I can say one thing.
I volunteered to serve.
As we posted a few months ago, David is now a First Lieutenant in the United States Army Reserve. Well done, David!
