Memorial Day/D-Day
« on: May 25 2019, 03:14:00 PM »
A lot of years ago, my dad signed up for a Pacific cruise. He was part of the "Sight Seer' 6th and followed MacArthur to places like Borneo and Luzon.


Every uncle I had and 3 aunts served active duty. they all survived, but are now long gone.

Fast forward to the politically correct present. Obama had his apology tour around the world being sorry for America's transgressions . I have nieces/nephews being taught in school, that my generation is the problem.

However, in parts of Europe, children are or were taught that they owe their very countries to the allies. The US, UK and Ca.
 
This video is well explained. Please remember family members who served on May 27 and those who served in WW2 on June 6.

I've been to Vimy Ridge in France to see the memorial the French made for the Canadian troops.  Here's to all the heroes! :cheers:
