Heraclitus revisited

If you've been in military circles for more than five minutes than you've likely seen that infamous quote attributed to Greek philosopher Heraclitus circulated. Having seen it ad nauseam I have updated it.

Of every one hundred people circulating this email on AKO, ten should not even be here. Eighty are nothing but targets or random tools and douchebags. The nine that are the real fighters are off doing actual training. Ah, but the one - one is the Warrior - and he brings the others home... but probably never receives awards and can't get promoted.

Reticules, Roman name for the Greek Reticles, the demigod of precise vision.
.495 BC (absolutely apocryphal)
