I must admit, I was quite proud to put my uniform on today. It was the hero's of the greatest generation that made it possible.
Acquaintance of mine's father died there, but he was on the other side. Was probably a decent guy.
My great grandpa was on the front lines and he wouldn't ever talk about combat. The only thing he would talk about was bootlegging cigarettes and even then you could tell when he'd remember something by the expression on his face. He passed a few years ago still having nightmares.
