You smug-faced crowds with kindling eye 
Who cheer when soldier lads march by,
Sneak home and pray you'll never know
The hell where youth and laughter go.
Siegfried Sassoon


  1. Hello:
    These are sentiments with which we wholly concur.

  2. Powerful photo. We watched the Patriots game with our friend who survived special ops in 'Nam; he still struggles, silently.

  3. It's a stunning image. There are those who never came home and those who did but not completely. It's an unimaginable sacrifice.


As Alice Roosevelt Longworth said, if you've got anything bad to say, sit next to me! No, really, please remember to be kind, and don't say anything fred's mother would not approve of (Diner's mom didn't approve of anything. Including fred.)
