VETERANS DAY/REMEMBERANCE DAY 2012
A dirge for the dead and a roll call for the fallen since WW1
For Verdun, for The Somme, for The Marne, for Ypres, for Gallipoli, for The Spring Offensive, for Château-Thierry, for Belleau Wood (where USMC bayonets, ferocity and beyond accurate shooting won WW1 since the Euros couldn’t do it)
For every leg dog face infantrymen, for every Marine, for every Paratrooper, for every tanker, for every artilleryman, for every pilot, for every airmen, for every sailor that had their ticket punched in ETO and PTO.
For the fallen on the barren hills of Korea in what was laughably called a “police action” and was some of the fiercest combat since the stupidity of WW1. Nobody but the men who fought through its hellish wastes remembers it. Warriors all and they will enjoy Valhalla for they earned a place at Odin’s table.
For the fighters of the hot “cold” war
For Vietnam, for my uncle and for every other father, brother, husband and son.
For Panama (you know, my friend, I never forgot nor ever forgiven the useless squid swimmers for getting you iced because they are retarded. RANGERS LEAD THE WAY)
For the first Gulf War, for the KIA, for my friends waiting on the other side. DE OPPRESSO LIBER
For Bosnia, for Kosovo, for the Soldiers and Marines that have not comeback from Clinton’s war that was only supposed to last a year but is going on 17. Then again Euros can’t handle their own business and need America to take care of them. For the memories that sometimes haunt my dreams
For Afghanistan and Marines I have left there. No better humans existed even the ones I couldn’t stand SEMPER FI MARINES
For Special Operations warriors that have fallen but cannot be listed here. Triple volunteers know.
