Lest we forget

Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.

Lest we forget the Few of Fighter Command immortalised by Churchill's words.

Lest we forget how young men died and what they died for. Those young men would fly to their deaths. They did it for a reason though. They believed in a dream.

They would cry unashamedly if they were alive today. We do too little for those young men and women who fight in places like Afganistan. They, they are the Few now.

Too many veterans kills themselves now. Too many young men do too.

Lest any of us forget that the Few gave their lives for the freedom we have today.
