well done Vern. An excellent tribute to your folks as well.
WWII has been given the mantel of history as a just war, a good war,
Some of its participants think it as their "finest hour", to borrow
But many actual combatants just don't want to talk about it, perhaps
outweighed the results, shame exceeding pride, the unfair outweighs the
confusion over good & bad, the loss of some many good folks.
It does seem that humanity is condemned to war. The evidence abounds.
balance, does anything good come from it?
One thing we know for sure, the victors get to write the history books.
Keep up the good work.

included, but I had to take a minute to congratulate you on a great job
putting this together. I will continue to watch the videos/links you
provided. Thanks again.

is so good. There was a POW camp in Forest
County Pennsylvania near where I lived. I have been there although it
years after the camp closed. It is in the Allegheny National Forest
Marienville PA. It had been a CCC camp prior to the war. They held high
officers there. i have had people tell me about the train coming in the

concerned in the camps in the U.S., "We were too damn good to them" my
said. There was a German POW camp near her in Maryland, and when the
heard rooservelt died, they all cheered. As far as the jap camps,!!!!
to keep an eye on all of them, They led planes into pearl harbor, I
SYMPATHY FOR THEM AT ALL
were our parents ~
What in God's name have we let happen? I guess we are the last
generation to see, or even remember
anything like these ! Whatever happened? It's called: Political
Correctness (or "re-education") happened, - Lack of God's name happened, - Lack of personal responsibility
happened, - Lack of personal
integrity and honesty happened, - Lack
of respect and loyalty to our country happened, - Lack of being an American happened.
Did all of these things die along with common sense??
I for one am still proud to be an American!
