Will we remember?

“You couldn’t let those things interfere with what you were suppose to do”

“You don’t deal with it. You turn around and walk off. You put it in the back of your mind. You couldn’t let those things interfere with what you were supposed to do”

If we ever (God forbid) have to relive a time when hundreds of Americans are dying around us, will we remember these words?

    One of the best of countless books written about the Paratroopers on D-Day that I have read was “D-Day with the Screaming Eagles” by George Koskimaki. He was a radio operator with the 101st AB. His book is a collection of stories by the men he served with and it is very hard to put down, I highly recommend it.

    These men like S/Sgt Blakey were scattered to the four winds during their jump, it was like the proverbial Chinese Fire Drill. Hardly anyone landed near their objective but like the true American Warriors they are, these men pulled it out of their hats and made a brilliant showing! There is no doubt in my mind that all German soldiers in that AO that day have never forgotten our Sky Troopers! It has been stated many times, and rightfully so, that the contribution these Warriors made to the effort at winning that war is impossible to calculate. Not just because of the enemy troops and equipment they were able to destroy but mainly from the chaos they caused from the German commanders thinking there were much larger units all over northern France. As the saying goes, the Germans were so confused they didn’t know whether to “scratch their watches or wind their butts”!

    Sgt Blakey and others fought fiercely hard and many of them are still in Normandy today. We must keep the memory alive of what they all did.

    Not letting the deaths interfere with what one has to do is another very difficult proposition. Especially when it’s spouses, children and other relatives that we see fall. It will be impossible for many people to do because of the nature of our relationship with the dead but as Mr. Blakey points out it is a necessary element to surviving and winning and it will be so in our time. We can not allow those who die to have done so in vain.

    There will be much suffering and pain, may God help all of us through it.

      It all will come down to what we will give up for our freedom. Or what freedom we will give up for our lives. Will we be free men or slaves?

        You knocked it out of the ball park with that statement ‘rat…how much is it worth? I will never forget the words of my Dad…”ain’t nothin’ worth having comes easy”.

          I think the PwTB are going to be surprised when the vast majority of American report for duty. Against them and their minions. Unlike those sheeple who are fearful of their own shadows, I believe this will be akin to the French Revolution. As Nathaniel Green called it, “a blood slaughter”. Only this time it won’t be the English, but Government agents and representatives.

    ‘Rat I know you are like me, you read a lot of articles and their comments and other blogs and I’m sensing a lot of hostility toward the Regime and Congress. Up until a couple of months ago it was a lot of “fussin’ and cussin” but it has come to the point where everyone is openly talking of killing the bastards. They aren’t afraid to say it out loud anymore!! People are getting beyond angry, they are pissed and on the verge of violent civil disobedience. I don’t know what it will take to touch ’em off but when they explode, like you were saying about the French Revolution and Green’s words, it ain’t gonna be pretty folks! There will probably be a lot of openings in government offices at all levels across the country. And of course we will be terribly short of Patriots also.

      I figure around 200,000 openings (not counting the HSA army of black youths the Kenyan will try to field) across the board. We will never run short of Patriots. For every one of those that the regime murders, it will touch ten fence-sitters and spur them into action. Even to the point where the remaining regime supporters are facing ten’s of millions, not hundreds of thousands.

    Yep, I don’t figure they will be either. Too much is going on of late, like more gun/ammo grabbing by the Dept of inJustice and dozens of incidents being reported daily of rogue cops killing, beating and holding people longer than reasonable. The kettle is about to boil over.

    I hope we have enough people like SSG Blakey above to make a difference, I know a lot of those men that can still get around will be out and about…and they’re pissed!
