Plagiarism of the "True Believer" quote

Seems everyone wants to steal your quote Doc and call it their own......


Americans, somewhere a "True Believer" is training to kill you because, unlike Europe, you refuse to submit! He is training with minimal food and water, in austere conditions, training day and night. The only thing clean on him is his weapon. This True Believer is not concerned about "how hard it is". He will not stop in his mission; he knows either he wins or dies and both have great rewards and are acceptable to him.

"Somewhere a True Believer is training to kill you. He is training with minimal food or water, in austere conditions, training day and night. The only thing clean on him is his weapon and he made his web gear. He doesn't worry about what workout to do - his ruck weighs what it weighs, his runs end when the enemy stops chasing him. This True Believer is not concerned about 'how hard it is;' he knows either he wins or dies. He doesn't go home at 17:00, he is home.
He knows only The Cause.

Still want to quit?"

This site has roughly 4600 members, I wonder if any of these folks are members here or simply lurk here. Fascinating.

It is an awesome quote, though.

And in that vein, here's an anonymous bit from the net:

Does this make NDD famous in his own time?

NDD was famous before he was born.

Chuck Norris asked NDD to join Special Forces because NDD was too tough for the martial arts world.

I want to be the first to nominate him for the Professional Soldiers Pulitzer Prize in the categories of non-fiction, history and poetry.

Jack Moroney, as resident poet laureate, of course has a say in this matter.

I ran into a soldier on lamespace that posted this quote, trying to pass it off as his own. I asked him about it; After some prodding, he knew that it was on PS.com, but he claimed he heard it at Benning.

Plagiarism sucks.

I cannot provide legal advice on a public forum without waiving the attorney-client privilege. NDD and TS know how to find me if they need help.

I put this quote on a background and hung it up in my bay for motivation. Over
400 soldiers have used it to get themselves through basic training. When they ask who NDD is I tell them a Special Forces Soldier. Alot of my soldiers who volunteered for the 18X program at the end of Infantry OSUT were because of the questions they asked my senior an 18E from 5th. It all started with this saying as the spark. and all the curiosity and awe. I wouldn't say plagerism though as I put quotations around the text and put Nous Defions Doc as the author.

I wouldn't say plagiarism either. What would be cool is a pic though. Call it royalties.
