Please Take A Moment to Remember

by Wes Kibble on November 11, 2010

We do a a lot of articles on Off Road Action about military vehicles. While we oooh and aaah over the photos, we tend to think little about the soldiers. For a reason, we do not put very graphic photos on this website. I know that we do not thank the soldiers often enough here and it is something that we would like to change. They put their lives on the line for our freedom. While you may or may not agree with modern military practices, you do have to admit that these brave men and women deserve recognition for their courage and sense of pride for their country. As one soldier said, ” If you do not stand behind our military, feel free to stand in front of them. ”

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.

– John McCrae
