Default 70 years, thankyou

On this day, 70 years since the beginning of the journey to freedom of the west, I'd like to thank those who took part in the Great War and the World War II, and especially those who entered hell on the beaches of Normandy. Without those brave men we would not be who we are today.

Again, thank you all.

Hi Rick, that was the issue with two "world" wars so close together.

Many men (and women) born around that time had to fight in two overseas conflicts.

Some modern day "hippy" types seem to feel that to honour these men and women is to glorify war... Nothing could be further from the truth...They might change their mind if they had to go to war to protect a country and its culture (not that I wish that on anyone).

There are so few veterans from WW2 left these days...

God bless them for their sacrifice....

X2 on everyone's statements

Workmanship is not perfection; it is how well you can cover your mistakes.

I too would like to add my thanks and appreciation to all involved who insured the freedom we enjoy today. Bravery and courage do not do justice to what they endured.

Those men & women are truly the "Greatest generation" and their wealth of knowledge will be sorely missed as they pass on to the great beyond. Well done gentlemen and gentle ladies.
