The soldier above all other men

is required to practice the greatest act 

of religious training - sacrifice.

 

In battle 

and in the face of danger and death,

he discloses those divine attributes

which his Maker gave when

He created man in His own image.

 

No physical courage and no brute instinct

can take the place of the Divine Help

which alone can sustain him.

 

However horrible the incidents of war may be,

the soldier who is called upon

to offer and to give his life for his country

is the noblest development of mankind.

 

General Douglas MacArthur, 1962

I posted this in another thread, but it bears reposting:


IN FLANDERS FIELDS

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
