Our Endangered Values: America’s Moral Crisis
President Jimmy Carter

Except for General Dwight Eisenhower, I spent more years in active military service than any other president since those who had served as generals in the War Between The States. Although prepared to give my life if necessary as a submarine officer, I joined other officers and men in common commitment that America”s obvious strength and steadfastness would be a deterrent to war – that we were the ones who were preserving peace. I never felt that my dedication to military service was a violation of my faith in Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace. p. 147.

I have cherished a plaque that a cabinet member gave me the day I left office, with a quote from Thomas Jefferson: I have the consolation to reflect that during the period of my administration not a drop of the blood of a single citizen was shed by the sword of war. p. 149
