    As most of you know I created a WW2 thank you memorial to all the allied soldiers who saved the world & freed the Jews in WW2.

    Well, today I had the pleasure & extreme privilige of meeting Frank Towers, who is 96 years young & the last surviving member of the 30th Infantry Division (Old Hickory). His memory and attention to detail of his campaigns from D-Day to VE day were riveting. The Fox news crew, guests and myself were truly mesmerized by the stories of this gentleman.

    He told us how his unit , stopped a train with 2500 Jews on it. And battle hardened soldiers would vomit when they opened the doors of the cattle cars.

    All I can say I'm more enthralled with the military who saved the wold in WW2, than I could ever imagine.
