Thanks for posting. Those are awe-inspiring, and gut-wrenching at the same time. I always wonder when I see an old fart at Wal Mart if he may be one of the greatest heros I'll ever see, and don't even know it. We can't begin to thank that generation for what they sacraficed for us.

Neat!

Everytime I see photo's of WW2...especially Normandy and Omaha beach envasions I try to find him. He was a "duck boat" driver. The stories he had and shared were neat, scary, and gorry. Some he wouldn't share because he couldn't handle it emotionally....

People getting shot, drowning, run over, blown up....etc.

thanks for sharing the link

Nice post. I just started watching Ken Burns Documentary, "The War". We should never forget the sacrifices that were made. I have one relative who fought through the cities of Europe. Another who survived the Pacific theater. Neither of them ever talked of their experiences. They answered direct questions, but never volunteered anything. It was a part of their lives they eventually just shut out.
