“We few. We happy few.
We band of brothers, for he today
That sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother.”
― William Shakespeare, Henry V
Few words greater epitomize a life dedicated to service. Few words summarize the comradery felt amongst those who serve.
The famous quote is from Shakespeare’s play Henry V, where the king encourages his men before the Battle of Agincourt. When King Henry V references ‘we happy few’ in his Saint Crispin’s Day speech, he is talking about his army. They are brothers, forever bound together, and ‘happy’ as their service shall be celebrated forever. While they are few in number, they are proud and glad to be there, and will be remembered as a band of brothers.
It is this sentiment that is carried among those who serve in uniform. A dedication not only to country, but to one another. Oakley SI has always been proud to support, honor, and recognize those who serve. It is our continued honor, and duty.
