Posted December 13, 2013 by Col. CONSTANCE JACKSON

Posted December 13, 2013 by Master Sgt. ERIC GRAY

Have you ever glanced down at the ground to see the distinct green of a crisp, clean dollar bill? I am willing to bet if you did, you would have picked it up. The question is if that dollar was crumpled up and dirty, would you have picked it up anyway? Would you have straightened…
