I got a little bit of a diluted impression of my motives from many of the articles. I take the blame for that. I should have been more clear.
I admire Ann Curry, because, like me, she is a Professional. She has always impressed me with her high degree of professionalism.
This is a worthy creed to follow.
1st Paragraph US ARMY NCO Creed:
"No one is more professional than I. I am a Noncommissioned Officer, a leader of soldiers. As a Noncommissioned Officer, I realize that I am a member of a time honored corps, which is known as "The Backbone of the Army". I am proud of the Corps of Noncommissioned Officers and will at all times conduct myself so as to bring credit upon the Corps, the Military Service and my country regardless of the situation in which I find myself. I will not use my grade or position to attain pleasure, profit, or personal safety."
