Dear Caleb, You will never reach that level of pressure or stress in the NFL or the Army because you will be sitting in a recruiting office in the Detroit area trying to convince young men and women to join the Army and fight in the wars you cowardly avoid. How’s that going to work? You wore a “C” on your uniform as an Army football player. I always thought that stood for captain but in your case it’s appropriate that it stands for coward or cut and run… Before you graduate next week I want you to muster up the balls to walk over to the West Point cemetery and stand in front of each head stone of recent graduates who were killed in Iraq or Afghanistan and tell them that you are going to face just as much pressure as they did. I doubt you’ll do that. You’ll kiss them off like you’re kissing off your classmates. I’m enclosing a photo of Pat Tillman, I’m sure you know his story. Take a close look at the photo and listen. I think he’s calling you a coward. That’s all you’ll ever be. // With the recent policy change that is going to allow service academy graduates to pursue professional sports immediately after graduation, I unexpectedly have received numerous calls, texts and messages asking me thoughts. While I couldn't be more thrilled about this move, it has brought back several emotions and memories to include this letter that I received immediately after being drafted. I went ahead and took the time to share the story behind the story that not too many people know about. I hope you enjoy. http://www.iamcalebcampbell.com/west-point-nfl/ Link
I would rather step out in #faith and fall on my face than do nothing.
