Co-authored by Robert Thomasian during the last year of his life, and written by David Stuursma,Armed With Integrity, is a personified account of the words character, discipline and leadership as theyrelate to patriotism, the family, and the work that is asked of every living person. Civilization, for it to survive, places upon man certain duties: to fight for that which is right, to train and educate children using moral standards, and to work to make things better. In every circle of his life — as an American, a son of the Armenian Genocide, as a graduate of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (1947), a full Lieutenant in the
U.S. Navy, a manager at AT&T, and as a husband and father — Robert Thomasian chose to anchor a lifetime of work in the bedrock of integrity.
