...Here, (unlike some posing purple pansies promoted as “precious” and “pure” in the supposed world of the holy) are real warrior descriptions; bands of brothers; fathers of families; men of might, portraits of valor; chosen as the chief and the choice, apt to the war and fit to go out and fight.
...These are they whom God recorded as His representatives in battle. They all bear the colors of their calling, the reputation of their rankings, the marks of their military reality. “At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.” (Flanders Fields)
