Faith means different things to different people. Most say it's belief in the Almighty, or God. Some will tell you it's sticking to your belief's even when in doubt. These are all true. Faith for us is belief in yourself, and belief in your brothers and sisters in the service. It is an unspoken commitment to one another that says "I'll be there for you and watch your back, and I know you'll do the same for me." It is knowing that, if you are hurt, trapped, or in any kind of trouble or danger, you're brothers and/or sisters will lay their lives on the line to save you, and you'll do the same for them. It is knowing that as comrades, we will make the ultimate sacrifice for one another. If you ever receive a message from me that says "Keep the Faith", that is exactly the faith that I mean. This is what sets us apart from civilians, and makes our relationship with each other special. So, keep the faith brothers and sisters, and we'll all be better for it.
