The battle was fought on fields of snow and during very cold conditions. There was the terror of death, of the enemy, of the weather. Fear of many types was rampant. Yet, these young men fought for the freedom of the World.
Pause and remember them. Remember, too, the young men and women who today are fighting for freedom. And fighting against the terrors of this day.
