"Without a word this uniform also whispers of freezing troops, injured bodies, and Americans left forever in foreign fields. It documents the courage of all military personnel, who by accepting this uniform, promise the one gift they truly have to give: their lives. I wear my uniform for the heritage of sacrifice it represents and more. ... I wear my uniform with pride for it represents the greatest nation of free people in the world."
— Retired Col. Karen Dorman Kimmel, U.S. Air Force Academy
