Quote of the Day
History demonstrates that previous military drawdowns invited aggression by our enemies. After World War I, America drew down forces until the U.S. Army had fewer than 100,000 men in uniform. That weakness invited Nazi aggression in Europe and the imperial Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor.
I remember there were days when - and this is kind of gross - I would sleep in my uniform to save time in the morning and then get up and go to school... it didn't matter because I didn't have to impress anyone, and I didn't have to look cute in class.
The way that people dress makes them part of an army, dressed in their own uniform, determined to do something.
The uniform makes for brotherhood, since when universally adopted it covers up all differences of class and country.
If my uniform doesn't get dirty, I haven't done anything in the baseball game.
The U.S. Military is us. There is no truer representation of a country than the people that it sends into the field to fight for it. The people who wear our uniform and carry our rifles into combat are our kids, and our job is to support them, because they're protecting us.
When you put on a uniform, there are certain inhibitions that you accept.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Twenty-five million veterans are living among us today. These men and women selflessly set aside their civilian lives to put on the uniform and serve us.
I see the world become so uniform. Everybody has to be the same. I like people who are different.
I wanted to wear a uniform when I was in high school, but I couldn't. I was like, 'It would be so much easier!'

Rio is an energetic, vibrant place, full of beauty and nature. But we face the kinds of problems any developing metropolis does - with pollution, traffic congestion, poverty. Distribution of green areas, for example, is not uniform. Madureira, the heart of the suburb in Rio, is a concrete jungle.
When passerby's ignore homeless people, they don't know if that was a man or woman in uniform previously. They should not be invisible. They cannot be ignored.
I like to keep a uniform - wear a blazer, try to keep the same colour pants; very tailored, very fitted but still edgy.

Percy Bysshe Shelley
I was taught you never, ever disrespect your opponent or your teammates or your organization or your manager and never, ever your uniform.
I have loved football as an almost mythic game since I was in the fourth grade. To me, the game wasn't even grounded in reality. The uniform turned you into a warrior. Being on a team, the mythology of physical combat, the struggle against the elements, the narrative of the game.
As a Korean War veteran, I know firsthand and understand the sacrifices made by our men and women in uniform.
Charles B. Rangel
Nike is the uniform for kids all over the world, and African design has been killed by Nike. Africans no longer want to wear their own designs.
