  • Belated Recognition: a medal at last for Congo survivor

    The whole thing of it is that people who have called you a coward for 47 years can't call you a coward any more. And if they did, you've got a medal around your neck to prove them wrong."
    This has been going around a long time

    NO ONE ever thought this man was a coward- at least nobody whose opinion counts

    but yet this guy has harped on for ages and ages that he wants a medal

    thousands and thousands of Irish SOldiers sailor and airmen served overseas and were

    involved in shitty situations

    but yet thousands and thousands of us dont start a campaign to get ourselves a medal

    MAYBE I AM MISSING SOMETHING

    but this to me is the most self serving piece of shite I have experienced in a long long time

    in summary

    an exer who saw shit in the Congp- is demanding a medal because he was superduper

    brave

    If you think your brave enough to be awarded a medal why go through all that shite

    why not just go to medals r us and design your own
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

        I served overseas with a 4th Bn CQ who gave us nothing but fish for dinner four or five times a week. Meanwhile those 4th Bn Knuckledraggers were getting fat on our meat. I demand some sort of recognition for the trauma. It was hell I tell ya.
