To the WWII and Pearl Harbor survivors, I salute you, the Greatest Generation.
You didn't have 12 to 15 month deployments like our current troops do.
You served your country until "V" or victory was declared.
We, as a country, should not forget the many sacrifices that these men and women have suffered through. And now, as they are all octogenarians or better, we are losing them by the tens and twenties every day. So let's not forget those who gave up so much so the rest of us today are not speaking either German, Italian, or Japanese.
And thank you Spiker for giving us a gentle reminder . . .
