    Let’s not forget all other countries that send their men and women to war for other people’s freedom!

    As a Dutch citizen, i would like to pay my respects to the sacrifices that have been made in the fight against tyranny and for freedom. 8,301 of your bravest fell on our soil. We will never forget. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you.

    Americans and the rest of free world should also honor the soldiers of New Zealand and Australia who also fought to preserve freedom. Anzac Day is celebrated on April 25th in memorial to those who also made the ultimate sacrifice.

    No matter how badly the Anzacs got knocked, they kept on fighting, from the New Zealand infantry to the Australian Lighthorse (mounted infantry).. so, my many friends across the world…. honor all those from your own country, along with those of the other free countries of the world who have died so that you can read these words.

    To my fellow veterans around the world…we all know that our fallen comrades are the true heros. Like many of you reading this, I often ask, why them? Each and every one was a better man than I, so why them and not me? Because there is no answer to that question at this time, all we can do is to try and live honest and productive lives and always remember and honor their sacrifices.

    Epitaph on an Army of Mercenaries*

    These, in the day when heaven was falling,
    The hour when earth’s foundations fled,
    Followed their mercenary calling,
    And took their wages, and are dead.

    Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
    They stood, and earth’s foundations stay;
    What God abandoned, these defended,
    And saved the sum of things for pay.

    A.E. Housman

    * The Germans criticized and dismissed the British infantrymen as just a bunch of rag tag mercenaries (only in it for money) in contrast to the polished, professional German soldier/warrior. It is in reference to such dismissive label of “mercenary” that Houseman wrote his poem.
