uncommon... how can any American disagree with your comment? I commend all vets, but esp. the WWII vets. They fought expecting to give their all. Many did. But they knew why they were fighting. To whip the Japs and the Germans or die. Many did. I have know many WWII vets. Most told me the same thing. They didn't expect to get back. Like my father said. We thought as if we were dead already. And we just did what we knew had to be done. Not thinking of ourselves. My father and my uncles fought in many battles and they did come home. They were the lucky ones. Many of their buddies didn't make it. The greatest generation indeed. By their deeds you shall know them.

Truely the "greatest generation"
I talked and dined with a vet on a regular basis for many years that served under George Patton in some of the most successful and historic battles ever waged by man yet he ALSO never discussed it
I never knew that I had been honored by the company of true war hero
I never even knew the true extent of his service until he passed
These men were both brave and humble
They simply came home and went about their lives and managed to put their wounds and the horrors of war behind them
And without the contributions of this great generation we would not be free today
Thank you one and all!!
