    I will take this photo and post it on my facebook and also forward it in my emails to those I know......Hopefully those who see it will not take for granted the old people in our lives as useless and in the way..... as the elders themselves were in the way.............in the way of being shot at,,in the way of advancing troops...and in the way when they were protecting the freedoms of their own countries. I see in an elder person a seasoned soldier in life,,with much know how and much to teach. Their faces say more than what words can express. Im proud of them.

    Hi
    I have seen this pic before, and as an Ex soldier myself the soldier is always in you, but this always reminds me of my lovely old dad, he is no longer with us, so thanks for putting it on.

    When I was a young boy I would always ask my Granddad about the war (ww2) he would tell me nice stories... when he was in hospital he asked if I wanted to hear the truth I said sure (I was 13 at the time). He told me when he went into Belsen Concentration Camp with the RAF, he said no life or soul filled that place; so much fear in his eyes, was very scary watching his eyes freeze

    I have much respect for the forces.
