Message Detail:
For good or ill the following , may, but doesn't have to, fit the state of signal re-enacting:

It ought never to be forgotten that the past is the parent of the present.
~John C. Calhoun (1848)

The above was made known to me in a posting by Andrew Duppstadt, on another re-enacting discussion forum.

Chuck Lee, in a post he made on 12/05/2005 at: 10:29:22 EDT Subject: RE: Signal Corp(s) - Two Cents Worth - Observations

"If we don't invest time and effort and consequently develop competence so that we are reliable and dependable, we deserve to be left out of every event.

Become accountable. Use SCARD to develop and determine your baseline measures of competence and performance. Be consistent. Practice, practice, practice."

Chuck goes on to offer a ditty worthy of memorization:

Here's a lesson all should heed - try, try, try again.
If at first you don't succeed - try, try, try again.
Let your courage well appear,
If you only persevere,
You will conquer - never fear - try, try again.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Be leaders. Be accountable for your future development. Be successful through re-enacting-wide signal certification. Be valuable to those you seek to serve, then, become a truly desirable commodity as a result your collective competence.
