Geocache Description:

Personal Courage: Face fear, danger, or adversity (Physical or Moral).

NOTE: FOR SOME REASON, MY WEBHOST DELETED THE HINT TO TELL YOU HOW TO FIND THIS CACHE. I'M TRYING TO FIX THE PROBLEM. UNTIL THEN START FROM N42 28.800 W92 20-587

Anyone who has thought about soldiering knows the importance of COURAGE – both on an off the battlefield. It takes courage to withstand the rigors of war. It takes courage to assume responsibility for life and death decisions. It often takes courage to "do the right thing." Courage is one of the Armys seven core values.

Here are some famous quotes on courage from past military leaders:

"Never take counsel of your fears."
- "Stonewall" Jackson

"Untutored courage is useless in the face of educated bullets."
- General George S. Patton, Jr.

"All men are frightened. The more intelligent they are, the more they are frightened. The courageous man is the man who forces himself, in spite of his fear, to carry on."
- General George S. Patton, Jr.

The Army says about courage that: "It is the premier military value that enables us to conquer fear, danger or adversity no matter what the context happens to be (physical or moral)."

Iowa Tom came with me on this hide and it was a great pleasure working with him. We picked a great spot, and Tom took some beautiful pictures, too. I was going to name this "I'm Drained 1 and a Half" at first. But I changed my mind, and now this is another in a series of my challenge caches in the Waterloo/Cedar Falls area. Again, cache at your own risk, though this one isn't as bad as some. Be careful, and be safe.

Please replace the container with the lid facing DOWN, where you found it.
After a thoughtful suggestion by Tom, I'm adding this link for you to to get the local weather from. It could be dangerous to go for this one after any heavy rain. Happy hunting!
