Some of you have probably never heard of the times when those doors were opened
just a little further out and those kids would jump out to run onto the beach
and instantly sink to the bottom of the sea... all that weight on their backs
plus boots = no swimming allowed!

There were also plenty of 'em who were cut to ribbons by machine gun fire as
soon as the door dropped down and lots more soldiers who were forced to jump or
climb over their dead buddies just to get outta the landing craft and head to
All in all I'd say these were indeed very brave men who did the best they could
when handed a particularly shitty end of the stick. I wish I could say I would
be so brave if ever in such a pair of boots but never having been thrown into
such a situation ... I can only wonder.
