"Public service is the essence of a free people, an open society, and a vital democracy. It is the centerpiece of a generous and caring culture. And there are so many wonderful ways to engage oneself in the employment of humanity, including elective office. Public service defines us, and it takes many forms. It is more than anything else the privilege of helping make a better world for all mankind. What is more important in life, more fulfilling, and more compelling?"

U.S. News and World Report has a new issue out and it focuses on Public Service. Chuck Hagel was invited to contribute on his experience and views on the subject. It is a short essay that is well worth the read.
Thank you to those that serve our communities, in so many different capacities.
