    When I wear the colors, I feel proud. My strength, my character is reflective of a company that oils a vast war-like machine that is logistics.
    I have always seen drivers as the Samurai of UPS, putting on browns encourages me to stand straighter and take better care of myself and others, without sacrificing any ferocity or determination.
    The UPS logo is a shield, a coat of arms, much like a brotherhood of renowned champions and veterans of the field. I see them day after day, the 25 plus year employees. That longevity, loyalty and strength to endure is upon my when I wear the logo and I want to jump in and fly out into the streets, bearing a logo that is over a century old and prospering still.

    I don't think that speech came out of a bottle and pretty sure it is illegal.

    I must say the color looks good on me, in a way I never thought. I've even expanded brown into my personal wardrobe as a result.

    You are probably right.

    I just think of, "unto the breach, dear friends, once more....."

    In other words, just so much cannon fodder.

    The sad thing is that we have all felt that pride at one time or another but the current regime in Atlanta has sucked it out of us.
