It will only be a few years before the last of the WWII veterans are gone.
The Greatest Generation is fading fast & we may never see that level of sacrifice & bravery again.
I'm sure most would rather go meet their Maker than live in this world we have messed up so badly

Sadly it's true, although their generation are the ones who passed the 'Hart–Celler Act' which sealed the fate of this country. So in a way, they are the ones with much of the blame for the condition of this country now.
