Happy Warrior: Ronald Reagan
In the tradition of William Wordsworth, Ronald Reagan promoted social reform and civic duty. Be a happy warrior yourself. Volunteer, be of service, and warmly lead others in your community.
“We've made much progress already. So, let us go forth with good cheer and stout hearts-happy warriors...”

“Who is the happy Warrior? Who is he
That every man in arms should wish to be?
—It is the generous Spirit, who, when brought
Among the tasks of real life, hath wrought” (Wordsworth, “Character of the Happy Warrior”)
