GOD AND THE WARRIOR

I believe it is the nature of man to require a power greater than he for the dual purpose of having something to blame and something to claim.

In battle, that greater power is Comradeship; after battle it reverts to God because the type of comradeship that is formed in war is unique to war… it cannot be experienced by those who have never participated, and sadly, cannot be reclaimed or relived by those who have; the memory of it is the best that our frail psyche can manage.
