Moleskin – Battle of Lanzerath Ridge/Battle of the Bulge
YHC shared the story of the Battle of Lanzerath Ridge. You can review it on your own by looking it up on wikipedia. Key takeaways…
We rarely know or acknowledge the impact we have on the grander schemes of life. Our actions make an impact everyday and we rarely see the ripple effects. FIGHT FOR THE MAN IN THE FOXHOLE WITH YOU!
We all have our own Lanzerath Ridges. The defense seems futile, but we continue to defend because the alternative is death or even worse dishonor. Action is ALWAYS greater than inaction.
Lt. Bouck’s request to an author in 2014 was that he’d only cooperate with the book if his entire unit (by individual man) were also included and recognized. Let’s lift up the wins of us all. IT'S NOT ABOUT ME!
Memorial today in Belgium reads simply: Uncommon valor was a common valor. LET'S MAKE UNCOMMON VALOR MORE COMMON!
Brothers, I love each and every one of you. I am so git dang proud of y'all and the push today. My cup overfloweth with your fellowship, your inspiration, and your sacrifice for the team.
SYITG, Cosmo
