Quotes

...here at Fort Lee has put a tremendous amount of effort into taking the vision and turning it into reality," he said after the walk-through. "I am extremely impressed not only with the event itself, but the Soldiers and leaders who are participating in it to make it happen. I'm very, very satisfied with what we're doing."
"I'm proud of your service and what you do," he told the assembled troops. "Everyone in this room makes the top one percent of the American people, because (the other) 99 percent are either unwilling or unable to serve in the Army."
"It was an honor to compete against the best soldiers in Europe, and definitely daunting at times" Hanson said, "but that’s what makes the competition fun."
"While, as in any competition, you know there can be only one winner in each category, I would like you all to know you are Europe's examples of fit, disciplined and well-trained professionals" said Command Sgt. Maj. David S Davenport Sr., USAREUR senior enlisted advisor
