    The end of an era. The "Greatest Generation" Two "D" Day survivors live not far from me. One is 94 and the other is 97. I get together with them every now and again. Some of the stories they share....

    We have the same caliber of people today, just one problem, POLITICIANS !!

    Those guys were allowed to fight and WIN !!

    Now they are only allowed to fight as long as they don't offend someone!

    RIP Buck!
