"You who are my brothers in arms...might be surprised that the statue on top of our temples, the angel Moroni, is a statue of a soldier. I believe there is considerable significance that of all the righteous men whom the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ might have chosen to abridge the records of the Nephite civilization into the Book of Mormon, which has great relevance to today's world, he chose Mormon and Moroni, two soldiers, for that sacred work. ...They were soldiers because they had to be, because their people needed them, because it was the right thing to do."
President Dieter F. Uchdorf
