This, for me, captures the essence of the warrior: someone willing to do whatever it takes to protect those she's sworn to defend... no matter the cost to herself.

ETA: it should be needless to say, but... my admiration for her takes nothing away from my feelings about those on Flight 93 who took such heroic action.

Wow!
Thank you for posting.
And I agree with your comments.

Thank you for posting that. I shared it here and on FB. I knew that but not the details. It used to be very hard to get live ammo or missiles anywhere.

flight 93 will always be my inspiration and benchmark for heroism...
