This is coolbert:

"Men of Cornwall stop your dreaming;
Can't you see their spearpoints gleaming?
See their warriors' pennants streaming
To this battlefield.
Men of Cornwall stand ye steady;
It cannot be ever said ye
for the battle were not ready;
Stand and never yield!"

Since this is the Memorial Day weekend, here is a web site dedicated to Cyril Richard [Rick] Rescorla.

The story of Rick Rescorla has been told many times since 9/11. Famous American soldier from the Vietnam War. [the photo accompanying this blog is perhaps one of the most famous war photos ever taken. Is of Rick in combat at Ia Drang valley. Taken by the famous/infamous [??] war correspondent Peter Arnett.]

Also a victim and hero of the 9/11 disaster. Responsible for saving almost all of the J.P Morgan employees from one of the two twin towers, while himself perishing in the disaster.

Rick's story bears repeating over and over. Please read.
