 "We came during a time when everybody, or America, said we were nothing. We came through a troublesome world, we fought a battle that they said we weren't capable of fighting,  no longer do we question whether we can accomplish a mission, we now can join the crowd that says, 'Yes, we can!' " -DOTA Grant Williams Sr., Virginian-Pilot Interview 2009 after attending the Presidential Inauguration
