Tribute: To The Common Soldier

The video included in this piece is amazing yet sad.

 

Is war within the human genome of man?

Do we find ourselves in constant wars to continue filling the coffers of our Federal Reserve and other central banks?

Please See “Why Banksters Hate Peace”

These banks had no problem lending money to combatants on both sides of any war.

Is this all a charade to continue fueling the defense contractors?

I say no.  Had we not taken on Nazi Germany and won they would have likely dominated Europe.

The Japanese had to be dealt with as they were as fanatical as Islamic Terrorists.

The Korean War?  We  spilled our blood and treasure saving  the lives of millions of South Koreans who remain our allies in the North’s intended push toward communism.

Vietnam, though we honor the veterans who served there, not so much.

I was never a believer in the Domino Theory and it of course was proved wrong.

Today we face a just war against radical Islamic Jihadists.

Our cost is just.

Their goal is to dominate the west and dissolve the U.S. Constitution which will not happen as long has we have a well trained and funded military to put them down.

 

Just A Common Soldier, also known as “A Soldier Died Today,” is one of the most popular poems on the Internet. Written and published in 1987 by Canadian veteran and columnist A. Lawrence Vaincourt.

It now appears in numerous anthologies, on thousands of websites and on July 4, 2008 it was carved into a marble monument at West Point, New York. This year marks the poem’s 25th anniversary.


Please enjoy this tribute to the Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, and Airmen who have given so much for our country.

  1. You forgot two. Two of my uncles marched to Nogales AZ during THE PANCHO VILLA WAR! Mexican soldiers kept firing across the border. Twelve were wounded and one was killed from that cross-border fire. Then the General notified Mexico that if they fired once more, our troops would enter Mexico and have no mercy. The firing stopped. Mexicans are still evil to this day.

    Before that there was THE ALAMO followed six weeks later by THE BATTLE OF SAN JACINTO. My Great-Great- Grandfather, Benjamin Franklin Bryant, led a company of men under General Sam Houston. There were only 976 Americans against thousands of Mexican soldiers. Some were old men. Some were in their early teen years, and some only spoke German, could not understand the orders, but in a battle that only lasted 18 minutes, they surrounded the Mexican troops and took the entire southwest away from Mexico. Everything from the south half of Colorado and Utah, all the way west to include Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico plus all of Texas. Most of those soldiers and wives are buried at THE SAN JACINTO NATIONAL CEMETERY.
