How low can you go to disagree with my comment..which centered around the service my father gave to this Country.

LOW VERY LOW...

Must be from one of those who never were in combat..never saw the inside of Hell..never had to make sacrifices for the good of our Country.

If they had, no one would ever disagree with the story of one of our Heroes...even when it is my father.

Very proud of all those who served. Most in WWII were just kids. My father was one of the 'oldest'..he was 22, married with a baby. Yet he went and participated in the liberation of France shortly after D day.

Later in his life he made me several tapes about his life. Much of it had to do with this war and his experience, all of which had a major impact on his life.

He talked about laying in foxholes as bombs exploded all around. He talked about losing friends almost on a daily basis. He talked about being helped by local French farmers when he became separated from his unit.

Mostly he talked about his fears and how war is PURE HELL. 'Anyone tell you different..either is lying or they have never been there"

With that he would tell me to work for peace. War should only be a very last resort after all other options have been exhausted.

In great HONOR of every person who has ever served...I work for PEACE. No ONE should have to go to Hell..if we can prevent it in
