    Need some help ...

    Hey gang....

    I have the book "On Combat" by Grossman.... but haven't had time to finish reading it.

    Anyway...I need a quote from the Sheepdog anylogy that is in this book for a school paper, and don't know where in the hell (err...in the book I mean) to find it!

    Can anyone at least point me to the right chapter or something??

    Thanks!

    There are wolfs, sheep, sheep dogs and us wolfhounds.

    We are the thin blue line
    between you
    and all the money in the world.

    And no you can't have any.

    Interesting read. Saved to show to some bleating sheep I know

    "This business of being a sheep or a sheep dog is not a yes-no dichotomy. It is not an all-or-nothing, either-or choice. It is a matter of degrees, a continuum. On one end is an abject, head-in-the-sand-sheep and on the other end is the ultimate warrior."

    If I must be a sheep...

    I also highly recommend another Grossman book, On Killing. A must read for Police and Military. It deals with the mental and emotional aspects of the taking of human life.

    Got them both. They should both be required reading for all LEOs.

    I didn't know the Sex Cannon wrote combat books!
    Hope he's better at that than his day job.
