Re: Combat fatigue
In Response To: Re: Combat fatigue ()

Excellent post. I've always thought this one typified a veteran, along with the aches and pains that are sustained:

'In the career of glory one gains many things; the gout and medals, a pension and rheumatism...And also frozen feet, an arm or leg the less, a bullet lodged between two bones which the surgeon cannot extract...All of those bivouacs in the rain and snow, all the privations, all those fatigues experienced in your youth, you pay for when you grow old. Because one has suffered in years gone by, it is necessary to suffer more, which does not seem exactly fair.'
-Elzear Blaze

Sincerely,
Kevin
