Major General, US Marine Corps (retired)

When service members deploy to other lands, they see the devastation wrought by governments who do not hold their land in stewardship for future generations. It gives those of us in uniform a unique perspective for the incredible beauty of this land, and we know that were it not for the protection of the Endangered Species Act, we would be no different from those countries that have failed to respect their environment. For us, a country worth defending is a country worth preserving.
