Blighty

 


Over the top


My beautiful boys


And let’s not forget lads …



The distance between


A hole in the ground and old blighty


Is all but a bang and a heartbeat away …

... For those that dont already know .. Blighty was and to some extent, still is a fond term of endearment for home, or more specifically England/Great Britain & used by both members of the armed forces and civilians alike .......... cheers

dearest Neville... I have personally nursed two
Veterans (one at a time) in my adult life... to
some semblance of a peaceful life. Post traumatic syndrome
(PTSD) is a reality. We (my family and myself) always thank Veterans
of the United Kingdom and other Allies... for their Service. It is an Honor
to bestow Blessings. Prayers ascending always. tenderly, Pat

This is a heartfelt poems that makes my heart sink thinking of those not returning home. My son is a Marine and he has already lost a few brothers.

Lots of issues on the site, unfortunately.
Have a great day, my friend.
A heart stopper literally. Mine skipped a beat. Do you know that I can't pass the veterans postings on my Facebook account without stopping to pay my personal respects. I can't help myself. When I see the faces of those men killed in action, it rips me apart. The ultimate sacrifice, dying for your country and sadly their loved ones pay the price too. So many from conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq and the Falklands :(

Thank You for remembering our losses in all conflicts.

Of course, I remember now when we discussed reincarnation. . So this has even more meaning.

.................... quite possibly .. maybe, perhaps ..
And so many fought for the land they'd never see again, to make sure their families would be free.
War truly is hell.
