“When you're left wounded on

Afganistan's plains and

the women come out to cut up what remains,

Just roll to your rifle

and blow out your brains,

And go to your God like a soldier”

“We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.”

“It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.”

“Old soldiers never die; they just fade away.

“The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace,

for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.”

“May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .”
“The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

“Nobody ever defended anything successfully, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.

“Fixed fortifications are a monument to the stupidity of man."
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.
Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

The Soldier stood and faced God

Which must always come to pass

He hoped his shoes were shining

Just as bright as his brass

"Step forward you Soldier,

How shall I deal with you?

Have you always turned the other cheek?

To My Church have you been true?"

"No, Lord, I guess I ain't

Because those of us who carry guns

Can't always be a saint."

I've had to work on Sundays

And at times my talk was tough,

And sometimes I've been violent,

Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny

That wasn't mine to keep.

Though I worked a lot of overtime

When the bills got just too steep,

The Soldier squared his shoulders and said

And I never passed a cry for help

Though at times I shook with fear,

And sometimes, God forgive me,

I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place

Among the people here.

They never wanted me around

Except to calm their fears.

If you've a place for me here,

Lord, It needn't be so grand,

I never expected or had too much,

But if you don't, I'll understand."

There was silence all around the throne

Where the saints had often trod

As the Soldier waited quietly,

For the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, you Soldier,

You've borne your burden well.

Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,

You've done your time in Hell."

Don’t do drugs, rob or kill, says national warrior
Friday, August 11, 2006
SRI AMAN (Sarawak) : The peaceful and prosperous life enjoyed by Malaysians today should inspire the younger generation to continue with the efforts to defend the country, says a national warrior.

Former Warrant Officer I, Kanang Anak Langkau, said the country’s younger generation today were lucky as they did not have to face war and rebellion like in the other countries.

“Malaysia is very peaceful now, don’t do useless activities such as taking drugs, robbing and killing. Lead a peaceful life.

“To school-going children, don’t let your parents down, study hard. Seek knowledge in order to become a useful person – your efforts will be rewarded,” he said here yesterday.

Kanang, 61, is the only living national warrior. He was awarded the Seri Pahlawan Gagah Perkasa medal (SP) and the Panglima Gagah Berani medal (PGB) for his bravery as a soldier.

A ranger known for living by the Iban war cry Agi Idup Agi Ngalaban (Fight for as long as you’re alive), Kanang recalled the time he served in the Armed Forces and fought to defend the sovereignty of the country, especially against the communist threat.

MEDALS OF HONOUR: Kanang showing the awards he received as a soldier at his home in Sri Aman yesterday. — Bernamapic Originally from Kanowit, Kanang, who was born on March 2, 1945, joined the Armed Forces in 1961 as an Iban tracker.

On Feb 19, 1980, the 8th Ranger Unit Combat Intelligence Squad headed by Capt Johnson ak Meling, assisted by Kanang, a sergeant at that time, was on duty at Tanah Hitam in Perak to track a band of communist guerillas, who had shot dead a soldier from the 25th Royal Malay Regiment several days earlier.

Kanang was injured by a booby trap set by the enemies and was attacked by the communists.

Despite suffering serious stomach injuries, he still went on fighting and killed several of the enemy.

For this, Kanang was awarded the SP medal on June 3, 1981. He was given the PGB award on June 7, 1987.

Speaking of his life now, Kanang said he wanted to make up for all the times he was unable to be with his wife Helen Latai anak Intie, 57, due to his duties.

“Throughout the 26 years of serving in Armed Forces, my wife and family were usually left on their own not just for a day or two but for months.

“Now, I just want to look at her face. She is always with me now and I won’t leave her again,“ he said. – Bernama. The source....
