My friend Neil Seymour is in Kuwait....his story is remarkable, a working class kid who enlisted for the opportunity of education. Now, with a BA and an MBA under his belt, he did not abandon his commitment, but embraced his duty...and serves with integrity and patience. He will pay his dues in order to realize his dreams. He is an example. And his story should be shared with every young person of privilege before they impatiently demand their next raise, promotion, atta-boy, stock option or vacation.
Merry Christmas, Neil...far away but well loved!
