I think some have been banned By some for taking a side against US troops. Survivors of WW2 still live today.

You know he's fooling around and he's done it every year I've been on the forum. He's a die hard red blooded 'Merican

It's different since he served his country, as well as the fact that he's celebrating his acestors accomplishments. You know, the one time they got froggy and attacked the most powerful nation in the world. Then got the smack down for 4 years until they got "all blowed up and stuff," As my son would say.

I get where you're coming from since your pops is a WWII vet. Just understand that Frank is the last person that would use that as a disrespectful stance toward any US veteran.

I think I know that as well ! Different backgrounds and cultures and Heredities sometimes have a different opinion of history. And may be offensive to others.

Back in the day, we used to have a moment of silence while in the classrooms. I wonder if that is practiced anymore or is it all a faded memory. Or worse yet, not politically correct.

RIP to the Vets!
