The journey continues: Building duty, honor and country through West Point speech

On my journey, the best stateside assignment was a tour of duty at the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York.  

My responsibility as a Tactical Officer to a company of 120 cadets included building the values of “duty, honor and country.” 

The following annotated speech of four truths was given by me many times: 

 1. The hard way is the right way.  When making decisions and all variables are equal, choose the harder right over the easier wrong.  

A Word About Recycling with Ollie Maier

 An interesting item from Recycling Today on the possible growth of metal recycling?

We find an India-based market research firm gave a report on what they thought might be the growth in the metal recycling market to the year 2020.

“The report predicts that the market will grow from $277.12 billion in 2015 to $406.16 billion by 2020 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.95 percent.” (To me, an almost 47 percent increase is a pretty significant one.)

As a devout fan of Terri Hendrix, I am confident in stating that she has empowered, inspired, incited and soothed me and countless others with her calming voice, original music and thoughtful lyrics.

She is tremendously talented and selfless in using her considerable gifts for the sake of helping others. Intuitive and empathetic, she understands people’s everyday struggles.

Since coming to work in San Marcos about a year ago, I had heard from others of how kind-hearted and down to Earth she is.

This week’s cat of the week is Summer, a 1-year-old female black and tortoise shell who is spayed. Summer is a gorgeous cat with an amazing personality to match. She’s very friendly and will let you pick her up. She gets restless if she isn’t played with for a long time, but will forgive you if you give her some affection. 

 

This week’s dog of the week is Magpie, a 2-year-old who has been spayed and is heartworm negative. Magpie is a very friendly, well-behaved dog who loves to run and play. She does tricks for treats and seems easy to train. Magpie is very strong so she would be great for a family that can keep up with her if she pulls on her leash. Her demeanor makes her a great family dog. Both pets are available for adoption. Their $90 fee covers spay or neuter procedures, rabies vaccine, microchip and city license. To learn more about adoption and apply to meet our pets, visit the San Marcos Regional Animal Shelter adoption office at 750 River Road, open from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturdays. Visit us or fill out an application online at www.sanmarcostx.gov/animaladoptions.
