Nick, at Ranger Up, has a post up that everybody should read. I am not even going to excerpt it. Just go here and read it all.
Maybe one day I shall tell the story of a little English girl whose first meeting with American soldiers stayed with her until she was an (almost) old lady. A meeting that shaped and drove her future actions for our troops. The British and American troops are most certainly forces for GOOD in a dangerous world.
Bless them all.
