June 6th, 1944. These men had balls of steel. 70th anniversary.

War is hell. I don't like war. Sometimes war is necessary. And Hitler was one son of a bitch who had to be stopped. All politics aside. The 70th anniversary of this is in a couple of weeks. Let's have a good memorial of these great heroes who gave their lives, so that we could have our lives that we have now.



Balls of Steel.

All Divisions Involved in D-Day >> http://www.army.mil/d-day/divisions.html

June 6th, 1944. 70 years ago.

The greatest generation since the founders. We pale in comparison. They deserve every props and thanks we can give them. Originally posted about my next door neighbor from the packages for troops thread.

He won two purple hearts, Silver Star and two Bronze Stars.

He returned from the war and married his high school sweetheart. Was a school teacher for 35 years. Played the trombone. In his late 70's, both him and him wife would go to the ocean and swim a 1/2 mile a day, every day.

He was known as Mr. Lewis to everyone not because he was a war hero who saved many American lives but how he conducted his life when he returned from war.

Truth.

Having walked the bricks at Auschwitz, it would be difficult to suggest otherwise...

I understand opposition to war. It horrible even for the "winners". But, if there was ever a legitimate reason to go to war, it was Hitler. How anyone can say it was a mistake to sacrifice so many of the greatest generation? They knew a world dominated by Hilter would not end well for anyone.

He was 96 when we moved in next door. He walked doubled over at the hip because of his advanced scoliosis. Could move at about the length of half of his foot with each painful step.

We have those big trashcans on wheels to put out trash twice a week. The first week we were there I saw him moving that trashcan out to the curb. I thought WTF and went out to move the trashcan for him.

When I got out there and offered to help take the trash out to the curb, he refused. He looked up at me, smiled and said I ain't dead yet. I thought okay crazy man(I knew nothing about his background at the time) knock yourself out.

I came home to find out he takes the empty trashcans from the curbs back to the house for all 4 of his direct neighbors. Been doing it for years. Refuses to stop now.

After we got to know each other, learned of his background I asked him to please stop and let me take out the trash for him. He said thats okay I've been doing this for 50 years, I can still do it. I said at least let me bring my trashcan back to the house from the curb. He did that look up again smiled and said I may be old but I still remember my military training, the trashcans are mine. And starts cracking up. It's the last time I saw him laugh.

I wish we would have got to know one another a little better.

His wife is an amazing person too but she is not doing very good since he died. She will be going into a senior citizen condo soon.

What I'll probably never come to comprehend is how, to these guys, they were just doing a job -fulfilling an obligation- but in the end they are probably some of the greatest heroes Western Civilization will ever know.

Training. And it was a job. There were very few jobs. They came up in a time where there was very little to be thankful for. The military offered a great deal more than what they were used to receiving. 3 squares a day is a big deal to a man that isn't familiar with it.
