He also spoke about the think ing and logic that went into redesigning the team. As he prepared to leave, Odierno thanked the Soldiers for their service. I want to thank you for raising your right hand and swearing an oath to defend our Constitu tion, he said. Less than one percent of the peo ple decide to do that and that makes you special in my mind. I understand everyone comes in for different reasons, but the fact that youre willing to do that says a lot about you as an individual and you should be very proud of that. Take that with you wherever you go and whatever you de cide to do. Its clear youre working very hard. Im proud of all of you and happy to meet you.
