NEWPORT-"It's been said a veteran writes a blank
check to the country he (or she) serves in an amount up to, and including,
their own life."
Those were some of the words of wisdom that Sgt./Major
David Hatfield shared as the keynote speaker at the 21st annual Veterans Day
celebration held at Resthaven Memorial Gardens on Sunday, Nov. 11.
Hatfield served 30 years in the U.S. Marine Corps,
including time spent as a Marine drill sergeant at the Marine Corps base in
Parris Island, S. C.
On Sunday, under beautiful skies and warm temperatures,
well over 100 people sat or stood to hear Hatfield recall that he "would
remind my recruits that quitters never win, and winners never quit."
Hatfield also said of veterans in general, "None of
them ask what their country can do for them, but what they can do for their
nation. They are the very best this country produces."
