Valor Speech

I’m very thankful for the service, and Patriotism of CDR Shipley. Always glad to hear him speak, and thankful for his spirit to serve. Praying for success in your new calling Commander. I also continue to pray for the peace of your family since the passing of Mr. Harry Shipley he really cared for his community as you do. Thank you.

…After being invited to speak on valor, I first thought about how to define it. As I do for most significant words, I referred to Webster’s 1828 dictionary, which defines it as:

“Strength of mind in regard to danger; that quality which enables a man to encounter danger with firmness; personal bravery; courage; intrepidity; prowess.”
