huntnh, I hope you remember that Henry Ford is dead too. In 1939 when WWII erupted Henry Ford was against the war and did nothing to offer help to the U.S. it was mid 1941 when he (because of embarrassment on his failing to act sooner) decided to help out.
In July 1938, prior to the outbreak of war, the German consul at Cleveland gave Ford, on his 75th birthday, the award of the Grand Cross of the German Eagle, the highest medal Nazi Germany could bestow on a foreigner.
Awards kind of make ya wonder!!!
