Duty then is the sublimest word in the English language. You should do your duty in all things. You can never do more. You should never wish to do less.
- Gen. Robert E. Lee
Air Force ROTC prepares young men and women to become leaders in the Air Force. You will grow as an individual both mentally and physically and acquire strong leadership skills that will benefit you as an Air Force officer and in corporate America.
If I didn‘t have air supremacy, I wouldn‘t be here.
- Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling, which thinks that nothing is worth war, is much worse. The person, who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
- John Stuart Mill
War, once declared, must be waged offensively, aggressively. The enemy must not be fended off; but smitten down. You may then spare him every exaction, relinquish every gain, but, til then he must be struck incessantly and remorselessly.
- Alfred Thayer Mahan
Integrity is the fundamental premise for military service in a free society. Without integrity, the moral pillars of our military strength, public trust, and self-respect are lost.
- Gen. Charles A. Gabriel, Chief of Staff, USAF
I don't mind being called tough, because in this racket, it's tough guys who lead the survivors.
- General Curtis E. Lemay, Chief of Staff, USAF
If our air forces are never used, they have achieved their finest goal.
- Gen. Nathan Twining
It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protestor to burn the flag.
- Father Denis Edward O‘Brien, Sergeant, USMC
In every battle, there comes a time when both sides consider themselves beaten; then he who continues the attack wins.
- Gen. Ulysses S. Grant
Leadership is intangible; therefore no weapon ever designed can replace it.
- Gen. Omar Bradley
The power of excellence is overwhelming. It is always in demand, and nobody cares about its color.
- Gen. Daniel S. Chappie‖ James, USAF
Victory smiles upon those who anticipate the changes in the character of war, not upon those who wait to adapt themselves after the changes occur.
- Italian Air Marshal Guilio Douhet
The American people rightly look to their military leaders to be not only skilled in the technical aspects of the profession of arms, but to be men of integrity.
- Gen. Joseph L. Collins
