“Thar ain’t much glory in looking at a man with his guts hanging out!”
Many of our WWII soldiers that were actually on Omaha Beach long ago stated that the portrayal of those horrifying minutes was the most truthful to that actual combat that they had seen since actually being there themselves. Once again, men with their guts hanging out desperately trying to stuff their bleeding innards back into their mutilated bodies. I have no doubt whatever that such scenes are even now being repeated in our own time by our own young men when they are attacked by such terrible weapons as IED’s. And then such nightmarish scenes are repeated again and again by these young men as they try to deal with the added horror of PTSD!!
Is it not bad enough that men have to go through this kind of horror? Do we really want to place future (or God help us, present) wives and even mothers into this kind of thing?
I will probably be castigated here from those on both side of the political spectrum. but this somewhat old fashioned left over 1960’s technological hippy says NO!!!!
