Memorial Day – Favorite George S. Patton Quotes

Via Right Wing News:

“I believe in the old and sound rule that an ounce of sweat will save a gallon of blood.” — George S. Patton

“Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory.” — George S. Patton

“Always do everything you ask of those you command.” — George S. Patton

“Better to fight for something than live for nothing.” — George S. Patton

“A good plan violently executed right now is far better than a perfect plan executed next week.” — George S. Patton

“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.” — George S. Patton

“No b*stard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb b*stard die for his country”. — George S. Patton

“To conquer, we must destroy our enemies. We must not only die gallantly; we must kill devastatingly. The faster and more effectively you kill, the longer you will live to enjoy the priceless fame of conquerors.” — George S. Patton

“We’ll win this war, but we’ll win it only by fighting and by showing the Germans that we’ve got more guts than they have; or ever will have. We’re not going to just shoot the sons-of-b*tches, we’re going to rip out their living Godd*mned guts and use them to grease the treads of our tanks. We’re going to murder those lousy Hun c*cksuckers by the bushel-f*cking-basket. War is a bloody, killing business. You’ve got to spill their blood, or they will spill yours. Rip them up the belly. Shoot them in the guts. When shells are hitting all around you and you wipe the dirt off your face and realize that instead of dirt it’s the blood and guts of what once was your best friend beside you, you’ll know what to do!” — George S. Patton

For all those who have served, who serve today, and especially to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for us – Thank You.  It doesn’t feel like enough to just say thank you – but we offer it with heartfelt gratitude for the service you give.

A Sailor’s Creed

A Sailor’s Creed

  • I am a United States Sailor, and a Warrior first. I fight under the Red, White and Blue of my Fathers and descend from the line of Jones, Decatur and Perry. In my ears rings “I have not yet begun to fight” and “Don’t give up the ship”, and in my veins flows Fire and Gunpowder.
  • I will master my profession and demand that my fellow Sailors master theirs. I will follow when led, and lead when able. I will place nothing above the welfare of my fellow Sailors, save my Mission, and no matter what my ship, squadron, station or watch, I will help deliver Defeat to the Enemy.
  • With Honor in my deeds, Courage in my heart, and Commitment in my hands, I will do my duty until Victory is in hand and Liberty is secure.

We should all fall to our knees every day and thank God that America still produces men and women who believe in things like courage, victory, liberty, country and service. May God bless and keep them all in the hollow of His hand.
