Im thinking about doing something like this with my next door neighbor, also a vet and getting up there. This vet here has an amazing memory. Further proof his was the greatest generation. I'll go back to slacking now... LiveLeak.com - WWII Veteran Shares His Vivid Memories of Being Attacked by Germans
Oh wow what a great find there! That guy is incredible. That's the sad thing about my generation -- it will be able to see the end of the WWII generation. It's going to be so sad when all of those guys are dead. Luckily WWII is by far one of the best documented wars in history, but you know there are so many stories that have yet to be told.
Enjoy your time on the cutting edge of humanity, I always say. And I also borrow a line from Shawshank Redemption. "If youre not busy living..." and then I always leave it right there, I never finish it.
Heh, watched that last night and was thinking of postin it here.
I really enjoyed the part where he was describing the encounter with the German patrol, just the fact that he remembered a small detail like the soldiers humming the tune to Lili Marlene.
