He often suffers severe injuries that threaten his life and the lives of his men. Rock moves past debilitating injury and the limitations of his physical body; he finds ways to tap into a wealth of mental power that allow him to overcome the vulnerabilities of flesh and bone. He wills himself to continue, and inspires his men to feats far greater than they can imagine.
Rock and his Easy Company always find a way to prevail, using all the resources of each man and the considerable perseverance and strong leadership of Rock. His unit encounters numerous operational obstacles and challenges - rather than weaken with the strain and crumble with the demand, Rock and his men grow stronger in their resolve and more successful in their achievements. “Nothing’s ever easy for Easy,” Rock said.
It is rare if something worthwhile is easy in life, too. A majority of success, whatever the endeavor, is attributable to hard work. Sports, school, work, relationships and life are difficult. Be a rock in the face of difficulty - be like Rock and become a man of greatness.
