Here is the generation of are our parents and grandparents. THEIR BRAVE GENERATION SAVED AMERICA! Most of the 1945-generation have passed on. Over a million of them died fighting in: France, Germany, Italy, Africa, Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, New Britain, Okinawa, the great Sea and Air battles, etc. Those who survived, returned, and built the greatest economy in the world! I GET TEARS IN MY EYES WHEN I THINK ABOUT WHAT OUR PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS DID FOR US and AMERICA! The few remaining are now in their late eighties and nineties, and their numbers are rapidly dwindling.
The following video Thanks to WWII Vets is an excellent trailer for an upcoming documentary in November 2011, which I feel presents an excellent follow-up to the VJ Day video above:
Thank you for watching,
