    He had white Horses
    And ladies by the score
    All dressed in satin
    And waiting by the door

    Ooooh, what a lucky man he was


    White lace and feathers
    They made up his bed
    A gold covered mattress
    On which he was laid

    Ooooh, what a lucky man he was


    He went to fight wars
    For his country and his king
    Of his honor and his glory
    The people would sing

    Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

    A bullet had found him
    His blood ran as he cried
    No money could save him
    So he laid down and he died

    Ooooh, what a lucky man he was

    My grandfather was with The Rifles in WW1.....very badly wounded on the Somme. The Rifles are a very famous outfit, history goes back to the 95th Foote during the Napoleonic wars.
    They have always been in the thick of the fighting.

    Vermont assumes a heavy burden in Iraq war

    By JOHN CURRAN, Associated Press Writer

    BENNINGTON, Vt. Vermont, a bastion of ex-hippies and Ben & Jerry liberals, has another distinction seemingly at odds with its peace-loving, tie-dyed politics: It has suffered more deaths per capita in the Iraq war than any other state.

    Beginning with Chief Warrant Officer 4th Class Erik Halvorsen on April 2, 2003, a total of 22 Vermont men have perished in roadside bombings, firefights, sniper attacks and helicopter crashes during the six-year-long war.

    "The losses we've had in Vermont have touched most of the state because we're so close-knit," said Maj. Gen. Michael Dubie, commander of the Vermont National Guard. "Almost everyone knows someone or they know someone who knows someone who's been affected by our losses."

    The casualties give Vermont, pop. 621,000, a rate of 3.54 deaths per 100,000 people.

    The high rate speaks more to Vermont's small size than it does to the actual number of deaths. With such a small population, it doesn't take a large number of deaths to produce a high per-capita rate. Vermont is followed on the list by Montana (2.87), Wyoming (2.57), Nebraska (2.50), and South Dakota (2.46).



    The state has lost only one soldier in Afghanistan, ranking 45th in per-capita losses for that war.
