I know I'm late on this but I have to make this thread out of respect for those who gave their lives.

As most of you probably don't know, I'll inform you... Yesterday, May 29th, was UN Peacekeepers day...

By resolution 57/129 of 11 December 2002, the General Assembly designated 29 May as the International Day of United Nations Peacekeepers, to pay tribute to all the men and women who have served and continue to serve in United Nations peacekeeping operations for their high level of professionalism, dedication and courage, and to honor the memory of those who have lost their lives in the cause of peace.

A special shout out by myself to the 85 men and women of the Irish Defence Forces who died

64 Swedes has died while making the world a better place to live in :salute:.

Those that has served as peacekeepers is the ones I respect most on this world, they put thier life at risk just to make the world a better place. Irish and Swedish peacekeepers has always been working closely togheter :), from Congo in the 60's 'til Liberia 2005.

A load of gratefulness and respect to the around 60.000 soldiers out there fighting for a safer world, 725 of them beeing Swedes.

Find someone named Marcus Mackan, of the 11th PzG Forgotten Hope Clan. He too is a Sweede. He'll probably think that top guy is hot...

You know, it was also Memorial Day in the United States. Technically, it is a day to remember those who have served the United States in the military in times of peace and war. But most people think of it, these days anyways, as the first barbeque of the season, when public pools open, and a day off of work. Shame on them.

UN Peacekeepers are just about the only thing the UN does that I like. I'll leave it at that.

But is it not somewhat ironic that the keepers of the peace are soldiers? That, and I bet casualities amongst peacekeepers would be quite a bit less if they didn't wear those bright blue helmets with a big UN written on the front. Doesn't blend in well after all...
