Thanks for the posts Poet, both post 1 & 2. It is always nice to read about our patriotic soldiers who puts honor above disgrace. It is a shame that the only ones we hear about being patriotic is the ones that was killed defending our country and our interest over the world. Our thanks goes out to Corporal Abrell, a patriot who gave his all in answering the call from his country. Corporal Abrell, I salute you and we all owe you a great debt. Thank you!

"The Common Soldier"?
There is nothing "common" about this person.
They leave the comfort and safety of their home and friends and family to go out and do battle against an enemy of humanity, an enemy that they have never seen, can't identify, and worst of all don't even know if it's an "enemy".
So I ask you, those of use who are sitting at our computers, in our comfy homes; are you willing to get off your ass and fight for some ones freedom?
I Did!

Pvt James F Adams, even though you had to fight in a war that should never have had to be fought (in a war, brother against brother, son against father) and even though You fought against the part of the country I was borned in, I salute you for your service to our country. Thank you for helping to keep our country united as one instead of two countries. May you rest in peace!

I may have posted this before, but it's worth repeating.
My oldest brother went ashore at Omaha Beach in WW2. He was later captured by the Nazis and spent the rest of the war in Stalag 2A. After his release he came home and counciled the inmates at a Washington State prison about what it's like to be a "real" prisoner. For me he defines the term "honor".
Hey MP! It's always a pleasure to have someone with your background post here!!

THE THINGS THAT MAKE A SOLDIER GREAT
Edgar Guest
PDF File Worksheet
The things that make a soldier great and send him out to die,
To face the flaming cannon's mouth nor ever question why,
Are lilacs by a little porch, the row of tulips red,
The peonies and pansies, too, the old petunia bed,
The grass plot where his children play, the roses on the wall:
'Tis these that make a soldier great.
He's fighting for them all.
'Tis not the pomp and pride of kings that make a soldier brave;
'Tis not allegiance to the flag that over him may wave;
For soldiers never fight so well on land or on the foam
As when behind the cause they see the little place called home.
Endanger but that humble street whereon his children run,
You make a soldier of the man who never bore a gun.
What is it through the battle smoke the valiant soldier sees?
The little garden far away, the budding apple trees,
The little patch of ground back there, the children at their play,
Perhaps a tiny mound behind the simple church of gray.
The golden thread of courage isn't linked to castle dome
But to the spot, where'er it be — the humblest spot called home.
And now the lilacs bud again and all is lovely there
And homesick soldiers far away know spring is in the air;
The tulips come to bloom again, the grass once more is green,
And every man can see the spot where all his joys have been.
He sees his children smile at him, he hears the bugle call,
And only death can stop him now — he's fighting for them all.
Nice to see you as always RS!
