80 years! When i was a young’n, I remember thinking that 1942 was so far far away. Might as well been reading about the Civil War. I was fascinated by any book or story about the war. Oddly, today I can’t remember where I put my wallet. Flash forward 60 some years later, and 20 years is a blip. Hell, the Iraq war was that long ago. I have had my truck longer, oh, Woody Boater is almost that old. It’s insane.
And yet here we are, even if we were not around then, it’s important to remember our history. As Winston Churchill said,“The longer you look back, the farther you can look forward.”
So today, we do our part, and reflect, remember, and salute all that have served, and supported the truth, justice and freedom for all..of us. THANKYOU. I do remember.
