  • The greatest generation indeed

     For years, I have been interested in the decade 1940-1950, where our young men and women sacrificed so much to fight the Nazi regime in Europe and the Japanese in the south Pacific.

    It’s amazing that our men and women both on the battlefield and at home never complained about anything. They knew the job had to get done and they did it.
