Being a quitter is a conscious choice.

Obviously he has never heard of the word.

Simply put...outstanding! Awesome example of perseverance and a "never quit" attitude.

"Out of every one hundred men, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back."

The Quitter - Robert Service (1921)

When you're lost in the Wild, and you're scared as a child,
_And Death looks you bang in the eye,
And you're sore as a boil, it’s according to Hoyle
_To cock your revolver and . . . die.
But the Code of a Man says: "Fight all you can,"
_And self-dissolution is barred.
In hunger and woe, oh, it’s easy to blow . . .
_It’s the hell-served-for-breakfast that’s hard.

"You're sick of the game!" Well, now that’s a shame.
_You're young and you're brave and you're bright.
"You've had a raw deal!" I know — but don't squeal,
_Buck up, do your damnedest, and fight.
It’s the plugging away that will win you the day,
_So don't be a piker, old pard!
Just draw on your grit, it’s so easy to quit.
_It’s the keeping-your chin-up that’s hard.

It’s easy to cry that you're beaten — and die;
_It’s easy to crawfish and crawl;
But to fight and to fight when hope’s out of sight —
_Why that’s the best game of them all!
And though you come out of each gruelling bout,
_All broken and battered and scarred,
Just have one more try — it’s dead easy to die,
_It’s the keeping-on-living that’s hard.

LTC Pickel is a leader of men, and man's example of how to be a man. I wish him the best in his career and future.
