This Memorial Day Cake was made by Janet’s Cakes. This cake has an American flag, an Army soldier’s hat, and a soldier’s tan boots. On top of the boots is a gold trimmed slip of paper with the word ‘Direction.’ In front of the military hat is a gold trimmed slip of paper with the word ‘Motivation.’ On the American flag is a slip of paper with gold trim with the word ‘Purpose.’
The 1990 United States Army military definition of leadership is “Leadership is the process of influencing others to accomplish the mission by providing purpose, direction, and motivation.”
The brave men and women who have served our country and given their lives for our country have demonstrated the Purpose, Direction, and Motivation necessary to keep the citizens of this great nation free.
We owe our freedom to the brave sacrifice of the men and women of the United States Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard.
