My great uncle was KIA flying B-24's in the European Theater in WWII.

I had 2 childhood friends that served on B-24s. One was a waist gunner, but I either never knew or forgot what position the other father was in.
I wish I had talked more to them, but back then, they either didn't talk about their war experiences or they only talked with other vets.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

Look how far we've come since then: over 10 million on disability, over 20% of the population on food stamps, real unemployment around 37%.
 
Progress sure looks funny.
Freedom is something you take.
Respect is something you earn.
Equality is something you whine about not being given.

Ain't that the truth. 

I was watching a documentary on the Korean War and if I'm not mistaken, they said the entire military budget for US armed forces in 1945 was around 83 billion dollars annually.....Right about what we spend of food stamps annually now.

Great video, but sad to see how far we have fallen industrially...
Opinion,untempered by fact,is ignorance.

There are some who do not fear death... for they are more afraid of not really living

That is so true. The liberals and tree huggers have passed tax laws and enacted regulations designed to run industry out of the U.S., and that's what our enemies have feared the most, our industrial might and our resolve to use it. Now we have neither the industry nor the resolve to defeat our enemies.

My father was a ball turret gunner on B-24's.  Flew out of Shipdham, England.  32 Daylight missions over Europe.  Didn't really appreciate how remarkable the man is until I was grown.
It's not the size of the campfire; it's the quality of the company.
