Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

The article quotes the veteran who thinks "it's disgraceful" as wanting to "burn them all" ['them' being the patches].  How does destroying all memory of the unit which did the atrocities help future generations to remember the atrocities and make sure this doesn't happen again?  Unfortunately, we need to remember what we're capable of.

Sure, the patches aren't the only way to remember.  But if all evidence of a crime is destroyed except for 88-yr-old's memories, the way lies open to forget.
