    That generation of Americans (our greatest generation) made a commitment that the United States would never be caught unprepared for war again. We will always be strong, we will always be ready, and we will always be free.

    My Father N law was at Pearl Harbor during the attack. He fought for the duration of the War.

    My Father fought the Japanese in the Pacific.

    May they RIP, as they are gone now..........the Greatest Generation Sacrificed their lives to make the WORLD FREE of tyranny. They beat down the Nazi's........and the Bushido's of this world......and remembering them today for what they did for this World is the Right thing to do.

    Many of mine also fought there as well. The battles there were brutal. The cost was high...........and it was the last War fought with the policy of TOTAL WAR. Something that has been forgotten now, in the age of the PC culture which has caused us to lose Wars or fight endless Wars.

    The Age of PC in War is a bunch of idiots who tie the hands of our military and NOT ALLOW THEM TO WIN. Something the Greatest Generation had never heard of.

    There would be No Europe if they hadn't have won. And there would be no China today if they hadn't won.

    I had a teacher in high school so many years ago. Who was wounded on D-Day. We asked him wear he got hit. And he said........in the ass..........and someone asked how did that happen.

    He said......it happened because it was the only thing sticking out of the sand that day that could be hit.

    Dad's ship, the Ticonderoga, was hit by a kamakaze plane and he was caught in the resulting fires for a time--
    when he came home on leave Mom said he was a total basket case. I never even knew it though--those guys (at least my Dad and his friends) never talked about it. When my son enlisted in the Marines was when Dad told the story, to him. My chin was on the floor.

    Let's just hope, folks, that we don't have to go through anything like it again.

    "And there would be no China today if they hadn't won."

    so we helped save china and created one of the greatest threats to freedom in the world!

    perhaps NOT saving china would have been a better idea.


    as for LOSING WARS

    you blaming liberals for your weakness?

    you blaming liberals because you are a girly man who gets pushed around by vietcong children?

    don't blame liberals just because YOU are a pussy
