I remember this day
#1
Not too many of us around that remember this day some 78 years ago. I do remember the president's address on the radio. I was too young to understand then, but I knew something serious happened. Even though, I will never forget that day and those to follow. Every day, the newspaper and the newsreels at the local theater told us of the wars going on in other parts of the world.

I was getting on an elevator the other day and a guy was getting off wearing a, "WWII veteran" hat. I wanted to thank him, but he was gone in a flash. Thanks to him and the thousands of others, we are free to have this venue to discuss trains, modeling and other things. We can travel freely without fear, we have enough to eat and we can work where we choose.

Remember those that gave their all for our freedom, and thank a vet if you have the chance.

My Dad fought in the Philippines during WWII and to the day he died he wouldn't buy anything made in Japan.

Thank You, Don!

I'm ashamed to say I had forgotten, until I saw the Queen on TV this evening...

Anyway, making my remembrance now.

Thanks for remembering, we cannot and should not forget. It just happens that yesterday was the 75th anniversary of VE day, the day that Germany surrendered. It's just hard to believe that some can't realize how senseless wars are.

Don, I agree wars are senseless. All of the WWII veterans in my family said it was no longer about saving the world from tyranny but, staying alive.


According to them the replacements was getting younger and the season replacements fewer.
