A reminder to all that war is a folly.
"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."
There is much talk at the moment.
I don't believe there is enough insight or sympathy, as to the true emotional and physical trauma the victims of being on the sh!t end of the stick
Thoughts ... not only for ANZACS on this day ( see the ode ) but all those currently scared out of their minds about family in the zone.
Chins up and raise a glass !
Bumping my thread ...
It is that time to reflect once again.
On the fallen that gave everything for the good of their nations.
And the angst of the families back home.
The quality of life that we take for granted. Did not come cheaply.
If anyone is not familiar with the ANZAC Legend, feel free to spend many hours with fascinating
arterial distractions as well as some very interesting history. Google search shall provide ! Lol !
Most returned servicemen tend to keep what they have done through duty to country - in house.
This is also their day to catch up.
Unfortunately, today I was reminded of ptsd with a story related to me by the Wife of an Afghanistan returnee.
Poor bloke is doing the dawn service in suit and tie. As a punter.
He is not marching.
Our current serving defense force needs our immediate focus ... Our diggers would agree .
LEST WE FORGET
