Some things I remember:
Doc finally gets his badge - August, 2013:
Don't you guess that the things we're seeing now will haunt us
through all the years;
Heaven and hell rolled into one, glory and blood and tears;
Life's pattern picked with a scarlett thread,
where once we wove with a grey
To remind us all how we played our part
in the shock of an epic day ?
We'll breathe free air and we'll bivouac under the starry sky;
We'll march with men and we'll fight with men,
and we'll see men laugh and die;
We'll know such joy as we never dreamed;
we'll fathom the deeps of pain;
But the hardest bit of it all will be - when we come back home again.
from Rhymes of a Red Cross Man
by Robert W. Service
I wouldn't worry 'bout it none, though. They're dreams and they're only in your head.
