Veterans Day, 2017 – Who Died?

First posted for Memorial Day, who died is just as relevant on
Veteran’s day.

We best honor the sacrifice of those who died by providing for
the men and women who  fought with them and survived.

‘Who Died’ is a five minute memorial to the young men who died
in the 1944 Invasion of France.

It speaks to the sacrifice of all young men and woman who give
their lives to preserve and protect American democracy.

Written, introduced, and narrated by novelist Betty Smith, author of
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn,” the film answers the question “Who died?”

Betty Smith: “I’ve just been told that over 3,000 of our American boys
died in the first eleven days of the invasion of France.

Who died? I’ll tell you who died.

Not so many years ago, there was a little boy sleeping in his crib. In the night, it thundered and lightninged. He woke and cried out in fear.

His mother came and fixed his blankets and said, ‘Don’t cry. Nothing will
ever hurt you.

He died.”

From the Technique newspaper

‘Who Died?’ – 1945

Description at National Archives: “Designed to sell war bonds, this picture requests the purchase of and retention of war bonds.”

Shake Me Loose…but let me sleep

from The Mind of RD REVILO

The Mind of RD REVILO

  • Funny, Some People Think
  • War will be different for them
  • They see the deadly destruction
  • But theirs won’t make them a victim
  • They’ll start the fight on Friday
  • Night
  • Then fight
  • Until Sunday
  • Back to work on Monday
  • And if they get injured or hurt
  • The enemy will nurture
  • Them back to work
  • So they can fight some more
  • And even up the score
  • No loss of electricity
  • Water will flow
  • No pain toward victory
  • No disappearance of people they know
  • It’ll be like a picnic
  • Only ants are pests
  • We’ll be in and out quick
  • Unlike the rest
  • Once they knowwe are serious
  • Fear will make the enemy delirious
  • And sue for peace
  • Just beating our chests will scare the beast
  • Our thunderous protests
  • Will make them confess
  • We’ll sing, we’ll cheer
  • The brave will bring up the rear
  • We’ll snarl, our fists we’ll ball
  • We’ll persist, insist…
