  1. I'm no expert in arabic army ranks so if anyone spots any errors please let me know asap.

    Sharaf, tad7iya, wafa2 ... "Honor, Sacrifice, Loyalty" is the Lebanese army's motto. You lived up to each of these words ... The Lebanese bow to your courage ... RIP ....

  3. BJ,

    Great post. May God have mercy on their souls, and may their death not be in vain...

  4. fubar9:45 AM

    May the nation be awakened by your fidelity and honorable service; and rise up to be worthy of your sacrifice.

    Rest in peace.

  5. BJ,
    This is the leat we can for them, may their sould rest in peace....

    Hope you anf your loved ones are ok.

    This is the "Grand Finale" and those behind all this destruction WILL PAY....

  6. May their souls rest in peace :(

  7. boys so young. thanks for putting a face to the name. allah yisaber ahlun

  8. May they rest in peace.

    Pls may i ask a favor, can you remove their pics and just keep the names?

    i found this more respectful for their status of military personel, so they are only remembered by their actions.

  9. Roch, we all share in ur wish to respectfully remember these men for their bravery and sacrifice, that is why this post is up.

    Not being a military man myself I was unsure of how to best honor them, so I took my cue from the Lebanese Army website which presented a similar tribute (click on the image at the foot of the post).

    Our hearts and prayers are genuinely with the families of these fallen heroes.

    You honor Lebanon's fallen heros. Empatic (but unsaid) evidence of their bravery is their rank: first line field leaders who showed their troops the way.

  11. Arabic Coffee Pot5:05 PM

    I hope all Lebanese start to appreciate the sacrifice these men have laid down so that we can be free of tyranny...

    ...FREE OF TYRANNY!!! These aren't just words, this is blood being spilled for it! Wake up!!!

  12. The best way we can honour them is to stand united as a country in support of our army.

    May God bless the souls of our fallen heros, be they soldiers or red cross volunteers.

    Beutiful tribute, thank you. May their ultimate sacrifice for a Free Lebanon be remembered by all, and may God bless their loved ones who remain behind to continue the fight.

  14. Anonymous7:23 AM

    The numbers keep piling up...

    ...God Bless Them.

  15. Anonymous2:40 PM

    Ah all this empathy and support. They are after all doing a tough job. Although I would like to ask of the people commenting here. How many of you ran away from the army service right after university to work or study abroad?

  16. Jimmy4:01 PM

    Thats an irrelevant question, conscription was canceled by the time of this conflict!
