WHAT'S NEW in the BATTLESHIP PHOTO ARCHIVES
"The dawn was bright and blowing. Angels perched unseen on the shrouds and crosstrees. Young men, fated to survive and become old men dying abed half a century hence, would forever remember this hour, when an army at dawn made for the open sea in a cause none could yet comprehend. Ashore, as the great fleet glided past, dreams of them stepped, like men alive, into the rooms where their loved ones lay sleeping."
From Volume One: An Army at Dawn: The War in North Africa, 1942-1943 Winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for History by Rick Atkinson.
"For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope; for a living dog is better than a dead lion. For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing, nor do they have any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now long perished; nor have they any more a portion forever in anything that is done under the sun."
From Qohelet / Ecclesiastes, 9th chapter, 4th/6th verse, translated from the original in Hebrew and published by the Koren Publishers of Jerusalem, Israel.
In the Second Book of Shmuel (Samuel), 10th chapter, 12th verse, translated from the original in Hebrew and published by the Koren Publishers of Jerusalem, Israel, can perhaps aptly describe the proper state of mind one should have in defending their county while in its service:
Yoav, the head of King David's Army, said to his brother Avishay:
"Be of good courage, and let us be strong for our people, and for the cities of our G-D, and the Lord do that which seems good in his eyes."
