Absolutely amazing.

A World War II Battlefield discovered in Papua New Guinea


unseen by any but the Gods of those who perished there.

Although the site was known to local villages, jungles reclaimed it after the battle of Eora Creek. Although locals hunted on the plateau surrounding the site, they avoided the 600-square-meter battle ground because of a belief that spirits of the dead were still present in the “lost battlefield.”

Maybe now they can rest.

    That could be anyone of us–or the fate of our children or grandchildren. One never thinks of that of course when one raises one’s hand to take the oath–such is the eternal optimism of youth–but such things only illustrate the grim possibilities that await all who take the oath to defend our country. A poignant but sobering reminder..
