"let me be your hero" Would you dance, if I asked you to dance? Or would you run, and never look back? Would you cry, if you saw me crying? And would you save my soul, tonight?(PID:50720906408) Source

Sgt Joe Bradley and Leytenant Lisaveta Britchkina are on Patrol around the Chateau St Lo in Normandy. Although the main Allied advance has moved on towards Paris, there have been reports of isolated German units scavenging the area seeking out any opportunity to hinder the Allies. They stop for a rest and Joe radios in their code position to Cpl Radar O'Malley at Beach HQ. The boys have been hearing some strange music in the background during radio transmissions. Joe has a good memory when it comes to music and he can sing what he hears pretty quickly. But an old man's voice is also heard but less discernable. He keeps repeating the same message but so far nothing clear enough has been heard. The dolls think they are human but strange unexplained events or objects they encounter make them question their reality. The question why no-one has died since the D-Day landings comes up from time to time. However, it is explained away by realizing the war they are in is a modern one, much safer than the last - well they seem to buy it, but not all of them. Mostly the term 'unexplained events' is used for everything and most of them ponder these things no further. The recent arrival of the doctor, Brigadier Leth-Bridge Stewart and the presence of the Romanov diamond are all connected in this mystery. Lisa lowers her voice to a whisper, "Comrade sgt Bradley you may kiss Leytenant. Ok Ma'am this is another one I heard over the radio lately." Joe clears his throat, his voice is a little shaky and a little off tune but he manages to carry it through. He begins... (words and music by Enrico Iglesias).

Or would you run, and never look back? Would you cry, if you saw me crying? And would you save my soul, tonight? Would you tremble, if I touched your lips? Or would you laugh? Oh, please tell me this Now would you die, for the one you love? Hold me in your arms tonight I can be your hero, baby I can kiss away the pain I would stand by you forever You can take my breath away Lisa searches Joe's handsome face and kind eyes. She feels safe and secure in his strong but gentle arms. Would you swear, that you'll always be mine Or would you lie? Would you run and hide? Am I in too deep? Have I lost my mind? I don't care, you're here tonight I can be your hero, baby I can kiss away the pain I would stand by you forever You can take my breath away guitar solo Ohh, I just want to hold you I just want to hold you, oh yeah Am I in too deep, have I lost my mind Well I don't care, you're here tonight Sing the last part with me ma'am I can be your hero, baby I can kiss away the pain oh yeah "That's right ma'am you got it!" I would stand by you forever, You can take my breath away. I can be your hero, I can kiss away the pain And I would stand by you forever You can take my breath away You can take my breath away "just me now ma'am" I can be... your hero "Oh comrade Sgt Bradley, kiss Leytenant now, it is order!" Leytenant Lisaveta Britchkina, Hero of Soviet Union, her barriers now completely torn down has her own hero in Sgt Joe Bradley Medic Corpsman from Allentown Pennsylvania, USA. Lisa kept her promise to Joe and was on duty waiting for him in Berlin at the end of the war. On the 25th April 1945 Lisa meets up with her unit on the river Elbe and must say goodbye to Joe and the 247 Military Field Hospital she has grown to love since shortly after D-day when she rescued Joe from the clutches of some German soldiers in a stolen Sherman tank. The Germans surrendered on the 8th of May 1945 and shortly after Joe headed for Berlin as part of an interpreter unit for senior officers. However, back at the Elbe Lisa and Joe have to go their separate ways as the American forces are not permitted to enter Berlin. The story goes: ...Suddenly he hears Lisa call out. "Sgt comrade Bradley - stop!" Joe stops for a moment still facing forward. He then slowly turns his head, fighting back tears, he turns to face Lisa. Lisa approaches Joe and stands to attention in front of him. "Sgt comrade Bradley - in United States Army is it not customary to salute superior officer?" Surprised, Joe throws a short sharp salute. Lisa replies in kind. "Sgt comrade Bradley, it is also customary for soldiers in armed forces of Union of Soviet Socialist Republic to kiss as a formal military compliment when in presence of Hero of Soviet Union - Leytenant Lisaveta Britchkina from Vologda!" Joe cocks his head to one side to convey his confusion. "Sgt Brad..." Lisa stutters, her lower lip quivers, "Sgt Joe Bradley you may kiss Leytenant!" Lisa lowers her voice to a whisper "Please Joe, please kiss me!" A smile comes over Joe's face as months of heart ache melt away. He warmly embraces Lisa [I took this small plot line from a Korean TV series called 'Descendants of the Sun' where a female officer pulls rank on her sgt boyfriend ] "Joe... I love you" "Lisa....Lisa....Lisa" "Lisa, I have always loved you". Joe repeats her name over and over, the first time he had ever called her by her first name. At the same time Lisa closes her eyes. "Joe, we will see each other again soon" Joe gently caresses her cheek with the back of his hand. "Lisa, do Soviet soldiers really kiss each other?" Lisa briefly breaks their embrace while still holding onto Joe. A stern look falls on her face. "You don't believe I am Hero of Soviet Union?" "No, no , no I was just , ah I didn't mean..." Lisa breaks into laughter "It's ok Joe I'm teasing you!" "Would you like to accompany me to airfield Sgt comrade Bradley or should I get those pilots there to help me?"... And later in Berlin... A few weeks later Joe and the team drove through the city stopping to chat with soviet soldiers whose Russian Joe was able to interpret. He pretended to be interested in their conversation but he was scanning the area around the open spaces. He saw the Brandenburg gate columns peppered with bullets and soviet trucks criss crossing the intersection. And then he noticed a female soldier standing on a platform waving two flags in almost semaphore fashion. Joe excused himself from the group and approached the girl. He also noticed a soviet film crew performing an interview with the female soldier. Joe stopped and stood still. A few trucks drove between them. The film crew departed. The girl flicked her flags for a Soviet Staff car, saluting it as it passed by, putting Joe directly in Lisa's line of sight. Her Mosin Nagant rifle was slung across her back just as Joe had remembered her wearing it after their last meeting. Suddenly the square was quiet. They stood looking at each other for a moment in silence. "Sgt Bradley" Lisa called out loudly. "Is it customary in United States Army to salute superior officer?" Joe replied. "Is it customary in the the armed forces of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic to kiss a superior officer as a formal compliment?" "Then Sgt Bradley...you had better obey order!" An ascending aerial shot sets the final scene as Joe crosses over to embrace the love of his life. As they intertwine the sounds of heavy soviet transport truck horns and the cheers of Soviet soldiers can be heard as they pass followed by Duffy and the gang circling them in their jeep. Joe, with his arms around Lisa lifts her up and swings her around. Fade out - Without any traffic control, the intersection becomes clogged and confusion envelops. Joe and the unit are stationed on Iwo Jima after the war in Europe is over but Japan surrenders and the unit is sent as part of the occupation forces. After a difficult struggle with red tape, on leave, Joe tracks Lisa down in Berlin and with permission returns to St Lo where they are married. One of Lisa's missions was to secure the Romanov diamond, stolen by German soldiers en route to Stalingrad. However, the diamond was also sought by the USA and they thought they had it in their grasp... Back in Moscow...in a secret warehouse location. "And now comrades we reveal the glorious efforts and ingenuity of the union of the soviet socialist republic, top secret plans taken from under the noses of the allies that will determine our solid future in rocket supremacy and world leaders in space technology" A soldier holding a claw hammer is given the nod to wrench the cover off a large wooden crate. The cover is thrown onto the floor and some wax paper pulled back. There is a sudden gasp and the sound of flash bulbs going off ten to a dozen. Lying in the crate, bright and shining is the largest diamond in the world - the Romanov Diamond! In Washington...The president begins to speak... "It is with great rejoicing and appreciation that we owe a significant debt of gratitude to our intelligence network. Without their contribution we would not have in front of us today this genuine prize of humanity that speaks for all Americans as we unveil the world's largest diamond. It is a tribute to the power of our democracy and symbol of our strength and courage as we assist to transform the world from the league of Nations to the new United Nations. On that note may I now declare. The second world war in Europe is over. These proceedings are closed!" The whole room is filled with roars and cheers as a corporal splinters the side of the crate open. "Careful corporal, we wouldn't want to scratch the diamond now would we?" The presidents stooges by his side break into laughter. The room is filled with the flutter of paper files, sketches and rocket drawings. Complete silence descends on the room. A small component rolls out squeaking and stops at the feet of the president. The president stoops and picks up the object, and a sketch of a V2 rocket, He scratches his head. "Well what the hell is this?". The corporal comes over. "Mr President, I think it's an automatic pilot, you see sir it says so on the" the corporal is cut off by the president who turns to his inferiors "I know what it says corporal, heads are going to roll for this blunder, what the hell are we going to do with a box of stupid skyrockets?" "And did we get that German chef who worked at the rocket centre kitchen famous for world cuisine or did we stuff that up as well?" The corporal replies "Oh no Mr President, he's right here" "Good, what's your name son, I presume you speak English?" The young man replies "Ja Mr President, my name is Von Braun, Wernher Von Braun at your service". Lisa and Duffy Washington are the only surviving members of the 247 MFH. Duffy is currently in the UK held up by the Covid 19 virus and can't make the 75th anniversary services in Normandy. Lisa is now in a rest home in Allentown, Pennsylvania and is surrounded by her loving family. New Years Day 2021 An attendant comes into Lisa's room and draws back the curtain allowing a ray of sunlight to shine through. The light shines on a photograph of Lisa, Joe and the rest of the unit members of the MFH in Normandy. "Good morning Mrs Bradley, Happy new year." "Same to you Betty" "You have family coming again today but I have a special letter for you, It's from a Mr Duffy Washington, oh it has a British stamp on it" "Oh, oh really, Lisa's eyes light up, can you read it to me please?" "Why sure," "Dear Lisa, I hope this letter finds you well, please pass on my new years greetings to your family. I know it has been many years since our last meeting but I hope to come and see you as long as my hips will allow it on my return to the States. My expedition to visit our old location in St Lo has been held back because of the virus and I was not able to attend the 75th celebrations there. However, the people here are really amazing and helpful and the government here has decided to speed things up a bit and I will be able to attend a small ceremony in St Lo early in the new year. You may be surprised that Lili's younger brother Deiter is still alive and I will be able to meet with him as well. Now I have a small request to ask of you if you can. I know it's a bit late but since Victoria passed away I used to place flowers on her grave regularly but her birthday would have been on January 12th. Members of my family will be there but I was hoping you could visit her grave. I know it's a big ask and if your hips are as good as mine I will understand if you can't make it. My great granddaughter Chelsea is with me and she will make contact with your family on the internet so we can see each other when I arrive in St Lo. Can you believe that? TBC In Lisa's dreams she once again is the young sniper girl in the strong loving arms of the medic sergeant that sang songs to her and won her heart. One evening, sometime soon, she will hear a couple of jeeps pull up in her driveway, Joe, Tommy, Buck, Katy, Ashi, George, Takitah, Jane, Michelle, Katyusha and Sarah will jump out and invite her to join them in their next big adventure. 20 November 2022 Over the last few years Duffy in ill health, has been staying with his granddaughter and her family in a 'granny flat' at the back of the family home in a quiet little street in Allentown. In the early hours of one morning, Ranger, the family dog, in slumber spread across and taking up most of the bed space, is awaken by an approaching car in the driveway. Ranger licks Duffy's face who slowly gains consciousness. After peering outside Duffy puts on his slippers and shuffles his way to the entrance of his flat. He goes outside, at first thinking that the Jeep and servicemen he sees in front of him are part of some military enactment group. But then he realises. Ranger looks at Buck and Joe in the front seat, the girls in the back and gently whimpers. Joe tells Ranger he cant come with them but Duffy convinces the team that since the dog is 20 yrs old and near the end of his days he should come with them. Ranger in excitement jumps onto Asahi's lap in the back of the Jeep. Duffy reaches out at Joes outstretched hand and notices his own hands are young and smooth. He squeezes in the back next to a young women, Victoria, the love of his life, together again forever. The following morning, Chelsea comes in with a cup of coffee for her grandfather and sees Ranger and her grandfather lying motionless in their bed. They had passed away. In time, even death itself might be abolished; who knows but it may be given to us after this life to meet again in the old quarters, to play chess and draughts, to get up soon to answer the morning roll call, to fall in at the tap of the drum for drill and dress parade, and again to hastily don our war gear while the monotonous patter of the long roll summons to battle. Who knows but again the old flags, ragged and torn, snapping in the wind, may face each other and flutter, pursuing and pursued, while the cries of victory fill a summer day? And after the battle, then the slain and wounded will arise, and all will meet together under the two flags, all sound and well, and there will be talking and laughter and cheers, and all will say, Did it not seem real? Was it not as in the old days? www.youtube.com/watch?v=mumPcoIZa_I&list=LLCePntDP9Sh... THE END
