The following is an excerpt from The Things They Carried by Tim O' Brien....

"How do you generalize?
War is hell, but that's not the half of it, because war is mystery and terror and adventure and courage and discovery and holiness and pity and despair and longing and love. War is nasty; war is fun. War is thrilling; war is drudgery. War makes you a man; war makes you dead.

The truths are contradictory. It can be argued, for instance, that war is grotesque. But in truth war is also beauty. For all its horror, you can't help but gape at the awful majesty of combat. You stare out at tracer rounds unwinding through the dark like brilliant red ribbons. You crouch in ambush as a cool, impassive moon rises over the nighttime paddies. You admire the fluid symmetries of troops on the move, the great sheets of metal-fire streaming down from a gunship, the illumination rounds, the white phosphorus, the purply orange glow of napalm, the rocket's red glare. It's not pretty, exactly. It's astonishing. It fills the eye. It commands you. You hate it, yes, but your eyes do not. Like a killer forest fire, like cancer under a microscope, any battle or bombing raid or artillery barrage has the aesthetic purity of absolute moral indifference - a powerful, implacable beauty - and a true war story will tell the truth about this, though the truth is ugly.

To generalize about war is like generalizing about peace. Almost everything is true. Almost nothing is true. Though it's odd, you're never more alive than when you're almost dead. You recognize what's valuable. Freshly, as if for the first time, you love what's best in yourself and in the world, all that might be lost. At the hour of dusk you sit at your foxhole and look out on a wide river turning pinkish red, and at the mountains beyond, and although in the morning you must cross the river and go into the mountains and do terrible things and maybe die, even so, you find yourself studying the fine colors on the river, you feel wonder and awe at the setting of the sun, and you are filled with a hard, aching love for how the world could be and always should be, but now is not.

Mitchell Sanders was right. For the common soldier, at least, war has the feel - the spiritual texture - of a great ghostly fog, thick and permanent. There is no clarity. Everything swirls. The old rules are no longer binding, the old truths no longer true. Right spills over into wrong. Order blends into chaos, hate into love, ugliness into beauty, law into anarchy, civility into savagery. The vapors suck you in. You can't tell where you are, or why you're there, and the only certainty is absolute ambiguity.
In war you lose your sense of the definite, hence your sense of truth itself, and therefore it's safe to say that in a true war story nothing is absolutely true.

Lay me down in the cold cold ground
Where before many more have gone
Lay me down in the cold cold ground
Where before many more have gone

When they come I will stand my ground
Stand my ground I'll not be afraid

Thoughts of home take away my fear
Sweat and blood hide my veil of tears

Once a year say a prayer for me
Close your eyes and remember me

Never more shall I see the sun
For I fell to a German's gun

Lay me down in the cold cold ground
Where before many more have gone
Lay me down in the cold cold ground
Where before many more have gone
Where before many more have gone

A view of the Scottish countryside taken from across Scotland.
Accompanied by the music of The Scots Guards ( Flowers of the Forest ).
Dedicated to all the men and women who have fallen in conflicts past and present. God bless and may they Rest In Peace
The Flowers of the Forest
A lament for the army of James IV, the flower of Scottish manhood, slain with their king on the field of Flodden, September 1513. The composition of this song began with a fragment of a very old ballad. Mrs Patrick Cockburn of Ormiston drew on this fragment to write a full song. Then in the mid 18th century Miss Jane Elliot, daughter of Sir Gilbert Elliot of Minto, Lord Chief Justice Clerk of Scotland, drew on Mrs Cockburn's work to make this lyric a much finer piece of work.

'The pipe tune is well known to anyone who has attended a Remembrance Day service in Scotland, but the song is all too seldom heard nowadays.'
The Scots had in 1513 invaded England to support their allies, the French.

On 9 September 1513 the Scots army, under King James IV, faced the English forces of King Henry VIII under the command of Thomas Howard, Earl of Surrey. The battle was ferocious and bloody - men were felled by artillery, arrows, pikes, bills and swords. Around 14,000 men died, including James IV, the last British king to die in battle.

"Scotland the Brave" (Scottish Gaelic: Alba an Aigh) is a patriotic song and one of the main contenders to be considered as a national anthem of Scotland. In June 2006, the song came second to Flower of Scotland in an online poll with more than 10,000 votes to determine the nation's favourite unofficial "anthem". The song is used to represent Scotland in the Commonwealth Games.

Scotland the Brave is also the authorised pipe band march of The British Columbia Dragoons of the Canadian Forces and is played during the Pass in Review at Friday parades at The Citadel. In 2006, it was adopted as the regimental quick march of the Royal Regiment of Scotland.

Scotland the Brave (in schottischem Gälisch Alba an Aigh) ist neben "Flower of Scotland" und "Scots Wha Hae" eine der drei inoffiziellen Nationalhymnen Schottlands. Sie wird als schottische Nationalhymne bei den Commonwealth Games verwendet.

Des weiteren ist sie der autorisierte Pipe Band-Marsch der The British Columbia Dragoons der Kanadischen Streitkräfte und wird während der "Pass in Review" bei Freitagsparaden an der Militärschule "The Citadel" gespielt.

2006 wurde es als schneller Regimentsmarsch des Royal Regiment of Scotland eingeführt.

Scotland the Brave (Alba an Aigh en gaélique écossais) est, avec The Flower of Scotland, l'hymne national écossais.

Scotland the Brave (en gaélico escocés, Alba an Aigh) es una canción patriótica escocesa, y una de las candidatas para ser el himno nacional de Escocia. En junio de 2006, en una encuesta en internet organizada por la Royal Scottish National Orchestra, esta canción quedó segunda, sólo por detrás de Flower of Scotland, como favorita para convertirse en himno oficial. De hecho, Scotland the Brave ya se utiliza para representar a Escocia en los Juegos de la Commonwealth.

«Scotland the Brave» (шотл.(гэльс.): Alba an Aigh) патриотическая песня народа Шотландии; претендует на звание неофициального гимна Шотландии.

Scotland the Brave è considerato uno degli inni non ufficiali della Scozia.

Scotland The Brave is een van drie onofficiële volksliederen van Schotland. De andere zijn Flower of Scotland en Scots Wha Hae.

Scotland the Brave é um dos hinos não-oficiais da Escócia junto com Scots Wha Hae e Flower of Scotland. Geralmente é executada como uma marcha binária 4/4.

Scotland the Brave (Skotsk-gælisk: Alba an Aigh) regnes som en av skottenes nasjonalsanger, og blir blant annet benyttet som nasjonalhymne ved Samveldelekene. I likhet med England har heller ikke Skottland noen offisiell nasjonalsang, men Scotland the Brave benyttes tradisjonelt som nasjonens sang - ofte sammen med Flower of Scotland. Teksten er skrevet ca. 1950 av journalisten Clifford Leonard Clark Hanley (1922 - 1999).

Scotland the Brave, skotsk sång som brukar framföras på säckpipa.

Sången brukar anses som skottlands nationalsång.
