No Atheists
In A Foxhole
“When you're left wounded on

Afganistan's plains and

the women come out to cut up what remains,

Just roll to your rifle

and blow out your brains,

And go to your God like a soldier”

“We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.”

“It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.”

“Old soldiers never die; they just fade away.

“The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace,

for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.”

“May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .”
“The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

“Nobody ever defended anything successfully, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.

“Fixed fortifications are a monument to the stupidity of man."
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.
Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

The Soldier stood and faced God


Which must always come to pass

He hoped his shoes were shining

Just as bright as his brass

"Step forward you Soldier,

How shall I deal with you?


Have you always turned the other cheek?


To My Church have you been true?"


"No, Lord, I guess I ain't


Because those of us who carry guns


Can't always be a saint."

I've had to work on Sundays

And at times my talk was tough,

And sometimes I've been violent,

Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny

That wasn't mine to keep.

Though I worked a lot of overtime

When the bills got just too steep,

The Soldier squared his shoulders and said

And I never passed a cry for help

Though at times I shook with fear,

And sometimes, God forgive me,

I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place

Among the people here.

They never wanted me around


Except to calm their fears.


If you've a place for me here,


Lord, It needn't be so grand,


I never expected or had too much,


But if you don't, I'll understand."

There was silence all around the throne

Where the saints had often trod

As the Soldier waited quietly,

For the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, you Soldier,

You've borne your burden well.

Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,

You've done your time in Hell."

Meet Toh, The First Chinese Army Commander to Hold a Top 14 Post in M’sian Army
Saturday, March 30, 2019
Major General Toh Choon Siang
World of Buzz : Now that we’re living in the new Malaysia, it seems that many new milestones are being made along the way.
In yet another achievement, we have our very first Chinese commander of the 1st Infantry Division in the army. Career army officer Mejar-Jen Datuk Toh Choon Siang was promoted to the position of commander of the 1st Infantry Division, another achievement for him ever since he enlisted straight out of school in 1977.
According to The Star, this was an even greater milestone to achieve because he is the third non-Malay and first Chinese to hold this post. Prior to this, he also made history by being the first Chinese to command the 11th Brigade in Selangor. There’s an old Chinese saying that good iron doesn’t make nails and good men don’t make soldiers,” he said.
“Well, I always say that I’m a special masonry nail.”
Johor-born Toh always wanted to join the Armed Forces as he comes from a military family, and applied to join the army after Form Five in 1975. However, he was declined as he was only 16 years old.
