This thread is full of beautiful pieces of history. Imagine what amount of stress and horror the the recievers of these awards had to experience to get them. How many friends they must have seen die..

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
