MONDAY MOTIVATION: LTG Benjamin C. Freakley, The Freedom Film Casting Director

“Soldiering is real. ‘X-Men’ is for Hollywood.”
by Lieutenant General Benjamin C. Freakley, commander of the United States Army Accessions Command (which oversees recruitment)

In honor of Memorial Day, I dedicate this Monday Motivation to active military (and veterans), who join for higher education and extraordinary opportunities. As we enter summer film season, remember: A soldier's act of courage for more freedom enables us to tweet, blog, and friend each other all day. Never take for granted your right to a day by your own social networking design.

In the end, our freedom is not free. Dictators and terrorists become shark food on purpose. Say a prayer for the families of the fallen and fighting heroes. We can make memories because of their bravery.
