Please accept my sincerest apologies for failing to publicly acknowledge our fallen heroes this past Memorial Day. No excuse I could offer could justify the oversight. Along with you, I salute the many men and women who have proudly and selflessly served in our military to protect, defend and secure the freedoms and liberties we enjoy each and every day. Their bravery in making the ultimate sacrifice will forever be appreciated and they will always be remembered and celebrated and never taken for granted or forgotten.
Re: Russian soldiers say commanders used ‘barrier troops’ to stop them retreating
Read some history that is just a Communist Russian tradition. Stalin started it in WW2. That is how he stopped the Nazi advance. It is well documented. Even as they marched into the heart of Germany, they still had to do that to stop the front-line troops from retreating. Most of the front-line troops came from parts of Russia Stalin didn't trust. How to stay in power 101.
