Default The fightingmen

History tends to focus on the bigwigs, the high ranking Officers, and the winners of major awards but for every one of them there are 10,000 "little guys" out doing their share. Here is a tribute to the "little guy." First up, Baden.

Well said and well done. Drei Hoch fur die Musketier, Gefreite, Unteroffizier und Sergeanten. You have all served your time in hell. May you all, known and unknown, rest in everlasting peace.
