Great Story!!
Sounds like great people also..

Thanks for posting this...

My Mother and Father met in the air raid shelters in London during WWII.

My British Mom, was what is commonly compared to as a red cross volunteer,, my Dad was U.S. military police...

They met helping guide folks to the shelters..


We forget sometimes what that generation endured..

They are in my mind, the greatest generation..


Thanks again for posting the story...

That's a neat story about your folks too Gooser. Strange how that generation met and endured so many hardships and went on to form lasting relationships yet now-a-days, folks rely on this internet thing and the first sign of conflict they bail out.

Cant' agree more! A generation of hard working people. My dad was in occupied Germany post WWII. Hardest working man I have ever met.

The battle for Britian lasted for over a year, and every night the London families went under ground to avoid the Luftwaffe bombings. Every day following, there was a death count--and it was substantial. Britian survived the blitz do to the courage of the people that would not surrender.

Gotta quote Winston Churchill-abridged, and from memory- might be off a bit. "We shall never surrender to Hitler. We shall fight him in the air, we shall fight him by land, on the beaches, and with God's help, we will rid the earth of his shadow"

Tough times, and what a tribute and contribution by your parents!

Post made my day, as I was trying (TODAY) to instill values to youngsters by giving them a sense of sacrifice in WWII.

Thanks Gooser and Brad

Wonderful article about Lee and Marjorie.
It sounds like a marriage that I hope to have.

When I read the book Band of Brothers I really began to appreciate all that our soldiers gave to us and to the World when they defeated the Germany Army. My grandfather was a bomber pilot during WWII. The only item he brought back from Europe was a 8 millimeter German Mauzer. He flew it back after taking it from a Nazi Sport Club and has a beautiful engraving of an Elk on it.

Funny how the people that literally saved the world are the most humble and gracious. Very rarely hear them even talk about their accomplishments. Truly the Greatest Generation.
