    Its crazy to think that, not even a century ago, some wacko was trying to take over the world . . . . .

    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.

    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.

    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 :)

    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.

    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.
