"Please, don't go. You don't have to do this, Dixon." Desperate tears slipped down Patricia's cheeks.
 
He cupped her face in his hands, wiping her tears away with his thumbs as he kissed her softly. "You know I have to go. I don't want to leave you, but I have to. It's the right thing. I've been called up; I have to serve."
 
The train whistle sounded, shockingly loud as the conductor's voice announced, "All aboard! Fort Hamilton!"
 
With a last wave, a brave smile, Dixon boarded the train. He finally understood the meaning of the words "serve with honor."
