    I don’t need pictures from 68 years ago to be reminded of the fact that I am currently living on a “battlefield” and the war is all around me. When this war ended, I was naive enough to believe that peace would now cover the earth. But we haven’t yet learned how to implement that.

        The exact city in which I live doesn’t make any difference.Our world is a “battlefield” and the violence and hatred and abuse of people is everywhere, and there is no sanctuary, not even in the “burbs”.

        Bob,

        Ah, but just pause to remember them – they were brave men who did what they had to do under very hard circumstances…the victories won in WWII were not entirely fruitless and we can always pray for better as time goes on.

        Bob1,

        During these trying times (WWII) there were no rotations or contracts that guaranteed anything–you signed up for the full duration. God bless all of them–those that came home and those that paid the ultimate price.

        Long stretch from today but even today’s soldiers go where no man wishes to tread. Does things that only God can forgive. I will always help a fellow soldier over the common man because I have brunt part of his nightmare. I can honestly say that I hate war because I have faced it–very few of the flower power or OWS shits can say the same.

    Whenever I hear the President or any politician say that everyone must sacrifice for something, I think of this battle, where nearly 20,000 Americans gave their lives and another 60,000 were wounded, missing in action or captured in the cause of freedom. “Sacrificing” by lowering one’s standard of living or by paying a “little” more in taxes so that the government can continue to spend obscene amounts of money belittles the word “sacrifice”.
