This weekend is very important to a great many of us who have or had loved ones in the armed forces. Thank a vet if you get the chance.

Since we are multi-national here, remember ALL vets.

Actually I know a guy who was wounded four times in the Spanish Civil War (a Dane from the international brigades)
He was arrested in 1942 and spent the rest of the war in a KZ-camp, typhoid, deathmarches and all, only to come home in the closing stages of the war and be elected right into the Danish parliament, where he served several periods up untill '75. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif
Maybe I should give him a call, and say thanks http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

My uncle was in the 3rd wave on Omaha beach.
He just turned 80 in April. Gave him a call

Will be putting flowers on my uncles grave today, just a few miles from here. He was a tail gunner in a B-17 that went down over the Bay of Biscay.
