What We Fight For

  1. We watched ” We Were Soldiers” Saturday night and I haven’t been the same. Perhaps because I could relate more personally ( I knew who flew missions like that, I met the guy a character was based on, I know CSMs and Colonels who joined their men like that ).
    My heart is so very heavy today…

  2. If ever proof were needed that we fought for a cause and not for conquest, it could be found in these cemeteries. Here was our only conquest:
    all we asked … was enough … soil in which to bury our gallant dead.

    A couple of years ago i stumbled across “We Were Soldiers”, watched it online – had never heard of the movie.

    I have never been quite the same since viewing that film.

    I share your heavy heart today.

  4. Read the book “We were Soldiers”; then look up “Rick Rescorla” who was there at LZ X-Ray and later gave his life at the WTC on 9-11.
    To ease your heavy heart, see if you can find this and watch it. I found it uplifting on a somber weekend.
    I saw it yesterday on my local PBS station, and it was an incredible story of two men who would not give up, who would never quit. They escaped a Jap POW camp just before the Bataan death march, and over a period of 159 days, ran, walked, swam, fought, and sailed 3,200 miles through hostile waters to Australia and rejoined the fight.
