I hate that the World War Two generation is quickly thinning out. I believe all the WWI vets are gone. If you see a WWII vet take the time to visit.
I recently talked to a Korean War vet who’s unit was overran by T-34’s, he was able to knock one out. I had known this man for years, and never knew this story.
The UK lost its last WW1 veteran this year and I think France has too.
My wife and I were saddened at the loss of Dick Winters when we heard that. I do try to pick up a paper and read the obituaries, always looking for WW2 stories.
I hope I do not forget what my grandparents have passed on to me, as I am going to do the same with mine. My mum has written down all she can remember from her grandparents and even further back. I have told her I want it all.
