Warning: date() [function.date]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

"We Still Need You"
Aired November 06, 2008
One of my injured friends told me that the hardest day of his life was when he was medically discharged from the Navy, and told that he was “unserviceable.”
Our wounded and disabled vets are serviceable. When we say “thank you,” they are glad to hear it. But they must also hear: “We still need you.”
Eric Greitens is a Navy SEAL and Chairman of the Center for Citizen Leadership, an organization that gives Fellowships to wounded and disabled veterans to begin new careers in public service.
