Amen... pulls on my Irish and Scottish heritage. So proud to be Canadian, and so thankful for all of those have, are and will be making such grand sacrifices for my freedoms. May God watch over their resting souls.

This is one of my favorite songs since my fathers side of the family are from Ireland and my mothers side was from Bohemia which used to be in parts of modern day Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, and I think Hungary. ACer's you should look into the story of why the song was made it's a sad but proud story of the singer who wrote the song about his grandfather or great grandfather who died in the Great War, WWI and what he thought his great or grandfather was thinking while dying on the ground in no mans land after being shot while trying to save his friends lives.

Hans-Joachim Marseille (13 December 1919 – 30 September 1942;. He is noted for his aerial battles during the North African Campaign and his Bohemian lifestyle. One of the most successful fighter pilots, he was nicknamed the "Star of Africa". Marseille claimed all but seven of his "official" 158 victories against the British Commonwealth's Desert Air Force over North Africa, flying the Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighter for his entire combat career. No other pilot claimed as many Western Allied aircraft as Marseille. Marseille, of French Huguenot ancestry, joined the Luftwaffe in 1938. At the age of 20 he graduated from one of the Luftwaffe's fighter pilot schools just in time to participate in the Battle of Britain, without notable success. A charming person, he had such a busy night life that sometimes he was too tired to be allowed to fly the next morning. As a result, he was transferred to another unit, which relocated to North Africa in April 1941. Under the guidance of his new commander, who recognised the latent potential in the young officer, Marseille quickly developed his abilities as a fighter pilot. He reached the zenith of his fighter pilot career on 1 September 1942, when during the course of three combat sorties he claimed 17 enemy fighters shot down, earning him the Ritterkreuz mit Eichenlaub, Schwertern und Brillanten (Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords, and Diamonds). Only 29 days later, Marseille was killed in a flying accident, when he was forced to abandon his fighter due to engine failure. After exiting the smoke-filled cockpit, Marseille's chest struck the vertical stabiliser of his aircraft, either killing him instantly or incapacitating him so that he was unable to open his parachute.

Rest in Peace Jake! Some of you may have known Jake on the main site as "Sgt. Jake" and as "Buitenwerf Dash" on the Facebook page. He was 15 years old and a member of the Canadian Air Cadets and we have been friends online and have talked for the past 3 years. He was a pretty cool kid and he had his act together more than anyone I know. All he wanted in life was to wear camo, shoot guns), and have fun. Unfortunately, on Thursday June 14, 2012, he was hit by a tractor trailor, and later died of his injuries.
