For the officers out there info
discussing the courage of today's military officers. There was a Brit,
Yank and an Australian.
The Brit began by recalling a heroic soldier in the Balkan's who lost
half his guts from a mine, but after having the medic put back what
remained and stitching him up, fronted up for parade next day.
The American cited an incident from the Gulf where a US marine was hit
in the head by a sniper, lost half his brains, and he too fronted up for
parade next day after the medic stitched him up.
The Australian replied saying that such events were common among
Australian soldiers. The Brit was amazed and the American asked how is
this so? The Australian said we have a place in Canberra called
It is full of officers with no brains and no guts and they turn out for
parade every day.

And shepards we shall be
For thee, My Lord, for thee
Power hath descended forth from thy hand
That our feet may quickly carry out thy command
So we shall flow a river forth to thee
And teeming with souls shall it ever be
In nomini Patri, et Fili, Spiritus Sancti

Qui tacet consentire.
Igitur qui desiderat pacem, praeparet bellum.
Nec Aspera Terrent.
Vir sapit qui pauca loquitur.
