Soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

Unfortunately, like Stalins and Mao and Kims  victims they are forgotten, cause  the press  doesn't care about Communist  crimes. :-(

With today's notes, sharing a few things that struck me:

At VA and among vets

Quote
"Joe Dan did what every Navy corpsman has done in the history of this nation: He grabbed his aid bag and ran into the kill zone," Duckworth said. "He sat there and took care of every single Marine until he knew that they were in line to be medevaced and that they had been cared for.
Only then did he use his own blood to put a 'T' on his forehead, and only then did he give himself a shot of morphine and pass out."

He was 22

Ford Hood memorial


Quote
One young soldier, Amber Bahr, was so intent on helping others, she did not realize for some time that she, herself, had been shot in the back.  Two police officers -- Mark Todd and Kim Munley -- saved countless lives by risking their own. 

One medic -- Francisco de la Serna -- treated both Officer Munley and the gunman who shot her.

What we owe


Quote

The same can be said of those who have seen, heard and tasted the brutal inhumanity of combat. My advice is to love the warrior but do not fall in love with what they do.

So, please come soberly into the act of remembering our veterans.
