Let's Not Forget

Most of the attention on Remembrance Day is rightly focused on the motherfuckers who got piled up in remarkably high mounds on the edges of battlefields for shipment home; those who were trampled unrecognizably into the bloody, infectious mud; those whose bones still decorate the ocean floor; and those who lived to wonder how they survived the violence of man's worst expression of himself.

Let's not forget they had lots of help at home.
