  • Quotes From Lisa

    Hi guys. I wanted to start this post b/c I read Lone Survivor and then of course had to run to see Act of Valor, both of which I loved. There's not a whole lot a little 4'11" civilian girl like me can do to let you know how awesome you all are or say thank you for everything you do, but I figured a few good inspirational quotes would be a small gift to hopefully pick you up when you're in a spot where you need some motivation. I'm a sucker for quotes and I know that sometimes the perfect little nugget can spark something inside of you. So you might see me on here every now and then posting quotes. If you like them or don't like them, let me know! Thanks again for putting yourself out there for this country and continue being the genius rock stars that you all are!
