Burak Nikolay Andreevich

Lieutenant N.

This is only a small part of the exploits that were committed by the Soviet people during the war years. The participation of every soldier, a worker in the rear, a doctor in a difficult task - the approach of victory over the treacherous invaders - can already be considered a feat worthy of great awards. But not everyone is destined to be encouraged by various government awards. Those who accomplish the feat sincerely, wholeheartedly, devoting it to their people and fatherland, will not demand any special attitude to themselves and chase after various awards.

The people who did not spare their lives for the defense of their Motherland during the Great Patriotic War are those with whom everyone should follow the example of the next generations without exception. In no case should the exploits of these people be forgotten by the inhabitants of our free country, which has become free precisely thanks to the exploits of the times of the Great Patriotic War.
