Quotations used by Army veteran, Tom Strassburg, in his talk about the significance of faith, military service, and our nation’s flag:

“Those too who devote themselves to the military service of their country should regard themselves as the agents of security and freedom of peoples. As long as they fulfill this role properly, they are making a genuine contribution to the establishment of peace.” (From Gaudium et Spes 79)

“The love and service of one’s country follow from the duty of gratitude and belong to the order of charity.” (From Catechism of the Catholic Church 2239)
