I'm seeing out the long weekend for Anzac Day and I just thought there should be a 'lest we forget' type thread to mark the occasion.
I had 2 great grandparents in the war and have been able to get their army records from the Australian War Memorial. It's unbelievable the sh!t these poor young guys went through.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
I have read some stirring accounts of soldiers honored on Anzac Day, and I am one American who doesn't want to forget or overlook their sacrifices.
Thank you all!
Brave men all, may they Rest in Peace.
However much the Brits, the Aussies, and the Kiwis enjoy a bit of banter about cricket and rugby, the British won't forget that these young men spilled blood for us, a long way from home.
A nice quote from Ataturk, in 1934.
"Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives. You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side here in this country of ours... You the mothers who sent their sons from far away countries wipe away your tears. Your sons are now living in our bosom and are in peace. Having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well."

"Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace" JesusI watch a TV show called "The Following" and Joe Carol is using this reference as an excuse to kill.Jesus was saying by believing in me, family's may divide and they won't agree on me...
