What does it take to put your life on the line to protect the weak – and I include most of us in that - ? It takes courage, faith, strength and a determination greater than I have never known.
I looked up how many wars and conflicts the military of this country have been involved in since WW1 and apart from WW2, I counted 30 others. Thirty! Most of which I’ve never even heard of. All these times men and women have fought in our name and I never knew. So many times. So many lives. I may not understand; I may not remember them, but I can take a moment to appreciate those who’ve played their part, the living as well as the dead, because the living were prepared to give just as much, and be thankful.
