The only people who ever gave their lives for others rights and freedom were Jesus Christ and American, Aussie, British and Canadian Soldiers.

Hard to type with my eyes all blurred up there, Larry boy.
Thanks for sharing this with us.
I confess that I have never seen anything but American videos of this sort.

Sorry to stir the pot there man but, your statement, though from the heart, is a bit skewed and biased. Not all heroes wear uniforms and speak English (or some form of it). Men, women and even children of ALL nationalities can claim this honor.

Here’s to Peace and a safe return to the heart and hearth for all who serve.

Peace and blessed be.

I have one thing to add to that, I don’t know if you’ve seen this down under. God bless them all!

I was in graduate school from 1974-1977. One of the grad assistants was from Australia. We had a get-together at the prof’s house. When Victor said they had been fighting the Japanese a long time before Pearl Harbor, I was amazed at how many thought the fighting started with Pearl Harbor.
G’day, mates!

Thank you Larry. They are all brave to take on that job.
May God bless and keep them free from harm. It would be nice someday if we had true peace and no one need apply for that job. I don’t think that will ever happen. Until then we all should support our men and women in arms where ever they may be. they allow us all to have what we have today- freedom from tyrants like they fight in foreign countries. Keep them in your prayers- especially this weekend….........Jim
