When reading that letter, this poem came to my mind, and I have put some of it in this post. "When things go wrong as they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems all uphill, When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest if you must ........ but don't you quit." That was the message I got from the update from The Old Soldier, and it puts into perspective any trials or tribulations a person may have, and unless your problems are life threatening, you don't really have a problem. My heart goes out to each and everyone of our "Old Soldiers" from all branches of our forces, not only for the part they have played in keeping our shores safe, but also importantly in the case of the gentleman above, who now has to carry his backpack a little further due to his terrible illness, but still he does not complain, but shoulders his pain and still walks the walk with dignity and a sense of humour that we would all be proud to own. "So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit, It's when things seem worst that you must not quit."
