“When war is declared, truth is the first casualty” ~ Anon
I have always wanted to be in the military. From my primary school days I had started reading about the exploits of Generals Eisenhower & Patton and Field Marshal Rommel. My best movie then was the “The Longest Day”, an epic war movie about the D-Day battle of Normandy in World War 2. Featuring the likes of John Wayne, Sean Connery and Richard Burton, it gave me a glimpse of the heroism that has defined the military for generations. Together with my friends we nicknamed our school, homes and some landmarks in our town after key structures of the Allied forces.
