"The Army had been using the recruiting theme 'Be All That You Can Be,' but it had lost its appeal to young people. The idea behind 'Army of One' was one individual making a difference as part of one unit, one family, one Army. Tim never made a decision in his entire life that wasn't prefaced by the thought of 'Is this the right thing to do for soldiers and their families?' On his headstone, we have engraved the words 'He took care of soldiers' because that's what he spent his life doing. He enjoyed the hell out of it." --Teri Maude, wife
