The Ancient Greeks and Romans often portrayed heroes specifically as those who rescued captives from the clutches of dangerous enemies. Out of this concept arose the ethos nemo reside, or leave no one behind. Before America existed as an independent state, a small group of American militia serving with the British in the French and Indian Wars established a sense of leave no man behind in American culture before there was even an America to speak of. Today, that ethos lives on in the United States Armed Forces and is captured in a breathtaking silver statue design. Right now, you can get 6 oz Silver Antique Finish Silver Soldiers Collection Wounded Soldier Statues online from Provident Metals.
With your purchase of the 6 oz Silver Antique Finish Silver Soldiers Collection Wounded Soldier Statue comes a standard shipping box for protection during delivery and a Certificate of Authenticity from the mint. Each statue has an antique polish applied throughout that creates heirloom quality for the finished piece. On the base of each statue, you will find the serial number, weight, and purity laser-etched into the surface.
Each 6 oz Silver Antique Wounded Soldier Statue showcases the bravery of one individual putting his life on the line to save a fellow soldier. In this design, a World War II-era soldier has run into the thick of the fight to retrieve a wounded comrade. With little thought for his own life and complete focus on saving the life of his squadmate, this soldier runs in defenseless to hoist his buddy onto his shoulders and carry him out of harms way.
At various points in American history, the military has followed the creed of no man left behind. It was in World War II that the United States Military really sought to go above and beyond in rescuing those still in harms way. In what remains the biggest rescue attempt in history, the US Military sent soldiers headlong into the meat of Japanese forces at Cabanatuan in the Philippines to rescue 500 US prisoners of war. Some 133 Americans from the 6th Ranger Battalion joined roughly 250 Filipino guerilla fighters to take on the 220 Japanese guards at the camp, moving 30 miles behind Japanese lines to reach the camp and risking a broader conflict with the roughly 9,000 Japanese soldiers stationed nearby. After a 30-minute nighttime attack, the Rangers rescued the 500-plus POWs and escorted them back to the safety of American lines.
