    but this is a post for all men in the military in very country. Well apart from unmentionable ones. I want to show my appreciation to soldiers who fight for not only their country but for peace, which in truth I a saddening irony.

    Our flag does not fly

    because the wind moves it. It flies with the last breath of each solider who died protecting it.
