For my friends in the USA
11th November Veteran’s Day. USA
The song at the bottom of this post by Brewer & Shipley ‘Seems Like Long Time’ always conjured up at image of soldiers around a fire, singing:
From 2:49 are the most telling lines:
‘War time is only the other side of peace time
But if you ever seen how wars are won
You’d know what it’s like to wish that peace would come
And don’t it seem like a long time….’
Think on these following images of how you got to be so comfy, and when those folk who have never been to war start banging the drum…..
And the ones who never got back in body or in mind….
(Hurtgen Forest Germany 1944)
(‘Somewhere’ in Europe 1944-45)
(‘Somewhere’ in the Pacific 1942-1945)
(Omaha Beach Normandy June 1944)
And just a ps for those Fools who embrace a neo-nazi cause:
