I pray that history never repeats any thing like that again. And please remember those vets that are still with us as not to many are around anymore, if you visit with one you won't believe the story's they have to tell! another piece of history is lost when we lose one.

there are 1.5 billion Islamo faithful, who will try to make Pearl Harbor look like a mere blip on our historical radar screen.

Yes, it did happen again, and we're still leaving ourselves wide open for another. And don't forget it happened again before that. Okie City, anyone?

We have virtually no border with Mexico, we also know that Al Queda uses the Mexican border to infiltrate our country. Still the liberals and progressives refuse to close our border, I don;t think they will ever learn.

And we're all racists and idiots for trying to teach them.

Your right, and I guess that there are a lot of things that have happened in our history that we should never forget. It just struck me hard that day when I took the neighbor lunch, 91 years old alone and no one remembers him and what he did for our country. Now to me that's a sad story and a lesson for me, I learned a lot, and love the stories he has to tell. Anyhow thank you for your services and I pray for you everyday!

I always tip my hat to those who served this great nation. We had an old guy who hunted with us, his stories from WWII always kept us spell bound. They were truly, the greatest generation.

WWII vets

I was friends with a WWII vet who told me storys of amphibious assaults in the Pacific when he was a 17 year old marine. If you could deal with that what the hell would scare you afterwards. He got blown out of a landing craft one time, floated around until dark, heard voices calling for anyone needing help way late at night and was too scared to answer thinking it might be Japs, not knowing if the landing suceeded or not. Amazing stories from these WWII vets, and such a disgrace that they are not always appreciated and taken care of. Many Vietnam vets here in Roswell among the forgotten also. We try to help when we can.

My uncle is a veteran of WWII, Korea, and Viet Nam and served right up until the late 70's or early 80's, so I've got nothing but respect for that group of men and women.

My Uncle Charlie, who is no longer with us, was part of the invasion of the Phillipines. HE got a set of samuri swords off a dead officer. I remember that when me and my brother were at his house, all we wanted to do was touch those swords.

WWII

My Father, now gone also, was an attache for Dwight Eisenhower, traveling with him most of the time and actually greeting him almost every morning. I always thought that was very cool. My Dad was a writer, speeches etc.; a very fast typist and a whiz at dictation, hence the traveling back and forth over "the pond". I was told stories about the German buzz bombs and how frightening those weapons were; he was narrowly missed once when one of the bombs slammed to the ground about a half a block from his hotel. A truly inspiring generation of men and women that performed an awesome and ovewhelming task !!!

Agreed - spellbound and anxious for more. My uncle piloted an LST on D-Day - smuggled a camera on board and took alot of great pics. I will have to scan those and post them..
