    I saw a piece on Fox News yesterday about an Air Force Captain, currently a physician, who saw that WWII vets are dying off at the rate of over 1000 a day. He organized a flight of small airplanes carrying 12 local WWII vets to visit their memorial in Washington D.C. who had never been there. This gesture has blossomed into chapters providing the same service in many places with free travel and expenses to these vets on commercial air lines. Take a peek at the information in the above web page and see if maybe you can find some "disposable income" to share with these efforts for the "finest generation ever."

    "The War" is excellent like most things Ken Burns puts out.
    I am a Vet and I owe everything I am able to be to my Grandfathers that fought in the most important War on the Global scale. WWII

    They truly are and were the "Greatest Generation"!

    Rebel,
    Some of us do care. My grandfather saw the Philippines in WWII. I for one, haven't forgotten.


    Thank you,

    Shawn

    Not only WWII vets, but Korean War as well. And don't forget that some Korean War vets were recalled WWII vets, many of whom had started a career, business and/or a family, unlike the younger draftees later in the war. These guys served their country twice over, and some got KIA.

    They may not be remember by all but are remembered and appreciated by many. If you want a good read get "Flags of our Fathers". It's our responsibility to keep these memories alive.
