No Atheists
In A Foxhole

Rudyard Kipling

" “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”

General Douglas MacArthur

" “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, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.
“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."

Captain Mukhtiar's heroes give him hope By Sheila Rahman February 02, 2009
Friday, June 25, 2021

If a medal was in the offing for dedicated services, Capt (Rtd) Mukhtiar Singh, 76, famed as the “country’s top bandit fighter” during the Emergency years, would surely have nominated the team of civil servants and armed forces personnel he met last Friday.
The spark of hope that Mukhtiar had clung on to, in seeking a pension for his services to the country, has been reignited with the “professional and fair” hearing he has been accorded by the various authorities, including the police.

“I am very happy that there are these officers who are taking so much effort looking into my case and verifying everything,” said Mukhtiar. Indeed, the authorities are leaving no stone unturned in painstakingly tracing his service records, which began in July 1948 — more than 60 years ago. “We keep our promises — within the ambit of our services,” said Datuk Yeow Chin Kiong, director of the Post-Service Division (formerly known as the Pensions Division) of the Public Services Department Malaysia, who chaired the meeting.

“Having charted the period of service of Capt (Rtd) Mukhtiar, who was with the police and subsequently, the armed forces, I can say that ‘Round 1’ of the police service is clarified. We are now working very closely on the second half of Mukhtiar’s service with the armed forces and will forward our findings of this meeting for evaluation.”

Present at the meeting was Armed Forces Operations, Records and Pensions Division staff officer Mej Ali Puad Ahmad, as well as representatives of the Armed Forces Veterans’ Affairs Division Pensions Department deputy directors Kpt Rozita Mohamed and Kpt Salim Ibrahim.

Yeow was assisted by Post- Service Division deputy directors (Development) Sadiah Abu Samah and Hussein Yasin, and Munirah Syukraan (Operations). Lt Kol (Rtd) Idris Hassan, who served in the army together with Mukhtiar, was also at hand to furnish information on his colleague’s track record.

Mukhtiar was not given a regular commission and hence, rendered ineligible for a pension because of the technicality of not attending the Platoon Weapons and the Young Officers Tactics courses. Mukhtiar had stated that he had been informed by his superiors that he did not need to attend the courses as he was already a weapons instructor. He more than willingly would have done so had he known it would have cost him his pension.

Idris, in requesting that Mukhtiar’s case be treated as a “special” one, reiterated that the army had used its discretion before in cases of a few servicemen who did not fulfil requirements but had been given exemptions because of their loyal service to the country.

“I sincerely believe that the authorities were not aware and never informed in a concerted manner of Mukhtiar’s sterling service to the country. This is the first time that we have such a forum to seek redress for a hero. I, too am hopeful.” The Malay Mail

It has been a long and ongoing battle for both Captain (Rtd) Mukhtiar Singh and his loyal friend Lt Col (Rtd) Idris Hassan. For those readers who do not know what this is all about please visit the following links:
