Out of all photographs and with all this hype of 65-th Anniversary, no photo is more powerful and reflects the heroism of the nation than this one, IMHO. Could be repost.......well.... Attachment 121361
is very interesting photo!
The photo shows the medal "For courage". Photo from a Soviet newspaper late 70's - early 80-ies. Title of an article "From courage in his chest". The soldier made a deed and received a medal. A few days later a shell fragment struck a medal, broke off a piece and drove it into the body. A splinter removed, and a piece of coin remained in the body of a soldier. It was dangerous to remove. But the medal has saved the life of a soldier. Since then, he did go to the "courage" in his chest.
Polish soldiers were best I wonder why they didn't took horses, there is horse squad trained for parades. Maybe because marching on horse's **** is hard ? Who knows
BTW I heard opinion of some Russian general, he said that US soldiers are worst in marching because they didn't feet it, I got to say he was true (no offence)
