In fact, it should be read by everyone.  We should all heed Bruce’s admonition that ‘We need to learn from our mistakes and ensure that we don’t repeat them.  We owe it to the next generation of brave soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines that they will not have to endure similar tests of their courage and determination.’”

General Jack Vessey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff 1982-85
