Wow.. that's something. Unfortunately the youth of America (and sadly at 45 that includes me I guess) can never truly appreciate what these heroes did for this country. Not to belittle the sacrifices that the Vietnam vets made or the IRAQ/Afghanistan soldiers are making now, but WW2 was war on a whole different level. Of course those at home were also involved since the war demanded production without a labor force.

I salute all of our hero's old and new..
