and the day we all were praying for arrived. It was --all at the same time--joyous and terrifying, because we knew this was the beginning of the end of Hitler's "thousand year reich", but we also knew that the dreaded telegrams from the War Department, would begin to arrive..............

The never-uttered question was: whose father, brother, uncle, cousin or friend would pay the heavy price?.......and as the months followed the weeks and days, I would walk to school, looking at the blue-star window flags, and I could see the heavy toll, as the blue stars turned to gold.

INDEED-- these WERE the USA's GREATEST GENERATION, both military AND
civilian.

Lost family there

My great grandfather left Auschwitz Poland with my gram and brothers. The brothers got to ellis Island and joined the army, survived D-day and ended up getting killed during the battle of the bulge. Buried in Belgium. The brother who stayed in Poland and fought, survived. His stories are fucked up. They fought the germans on horseback with WWI style rifles and got their ass kicked. He was lucky. He never had kids because he didnt want to bring children into this world.
