    That was beautiful! I am sorry but that presentation brought tears to my eyes. It is so different today that we can meet the coming home soldiers, in their time they were hated and came home without any fanfare. I believe that while some of them are still alive, we should honor them and be kind to them no matter what their circumstances in life are now. They who had worked so hard to keep this country safe...even those that did not come home.

    It will go to the wyff4.com site but just below the header it says it can't be found. Something about they had switched to a new platform. Beat me, ill check it out when I get on my main cpu.

    It takes a while to load on my desktop too and my pooter should be as fast it can be with my "smart" graphic card I use for rendering images for adverts...but I did see it. I will advise everyone to wait a while if you have time...it is well worth seeing it.

    Thanks for posting NCIC. I drink coffee every morning with several WWII vets. They are very humble people and rarely talk about their war time experiences. One of them is still having trouble dealing with an enemy soldier he killed at point blank range with his side arm. On the rare occasion when they do talk, the stories are great.

    You are very lucky to be with them every morning. I get to see my oldie friends only about 6x a year through our fly-ins and theirs. And all of them have stories to tell during the debriefs. I will make sure to give them a bit of my time when our own convention comes in June...they are fun to be with and to talk with. I make a video each year about them and the fallen during our memorial. It's my contribution and they love to see themselves with their planes and hear their stories being told. How I envy you...

    Wow that is a great tribute. My dad is still with us and is a WWII vet. He lost one brother in the war but he and two other brothers survived the war. The are truely members of the greatest generation.
    We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union.
