He was CALLED. He SERVED. He is COUNTED.
President Ford gets a postage stamp in his memory. When he became Vice President he famously said "I'm a Ford, not a Lincoln". He was a good man. He was a good husband. He was exactly what this Republic needed after Richard Nixon. He may have been the most decent President we ever had. We could use more like him.
Hell, he even took on a typhoon and won. The man was a genuine hero during World War Two. Few remember the incident.
By the way the quote, "He was CALLED. He SERVED. He is COUNTED." comes from the great TV show "The Wire". During a "detectives wake" for a dead cop. You can click on this link for the video if you choose.
