d-day. june 6 1944.
Hats off to those who fought in the conflicts of WWII. They truly were the greatest generation of Americans.
EDIT: I should call my grandfather.
uhm... yea, i'll leave that one to the political forum...
I only brought it up as a reason why this is an important day . .
People today, especially the youngest generation, take advantage of all the hardship and suffering our older generation endured in order to fight for the freedoms we have today.
Enjoy your freedom? Thank a veteran.
God bless to all those who fought and spared their lives for this nation.
i'll be visiting my grandfather this afternoon
grandmother passed away last year and he's still recovering from a knee replacement, shits been rough for him lately
he was in japan for the occupation after WW2
just last week he finally was able to go grocery shopping for himself again, and he's driving himself around too
bingo is one hell of a motivator
im gonna go to the VFW and play bingo with the old folks...lol...nah...jk...but it sounds fun...
My grandfather (mom's side) was in Poland during WWII. I've seen newspaper clippings that he saved showing fighters flying overhead in swastika formation and all sorts of different pictures of the war. Completely insane.
My grandfather (dad's side) was an unexploded bombs tech for the British. Could explain my love of things that go boom
Its crazy that this stuff happened . . seems so far off to us now but its not.
On a side note if any of you are WWII history buffs I would check out Band Of Brothers from HBO. I really enjoy watching it whenever it is on the history channel. Just thought I would throw that in there.
<--- have seen BoB in it's entireyy at least 20 times. love that series.
Yeah I sit down and watch it from where I catch it to the end whenever its on. I never realized how many cameos/stars were actually in it.
You zeke driving sonofabitch.
Yo Bingo chicks are hot. Just kidding.
But yea my Grandfather was a little young for WWII. He was stationed near the border in the Korean War. He passed in 2000 though.
Separate names with a comma.
