Reflections – I am a Corporal

Chicago Daily Law Bulletin
During the Revolutionary War, a group of soldiers was ordered to raise a heavy timber which the enemy had used to block the road. They could scarcely lift it from the road. A young corporal stood by, urging the men to lift hard, and shouting, “Now boys, right up!” With each subsequent failure to move the immense timber, the corporal’s commands sounded more and more severe. A superior officer passing by observed the efforts of the men and the sharp commands of the corporal. He rode up to them, dismounted, and lent his own strength to the task, lifting with the men. When the timber was in place, the officer asked the corporal why he did not help with the task. “Why, I am a corporal,” he replied. “I am George Washington,” responded the officer.
