A true leader. A true hero. I thought he died in 2011? I'm going to have to re-watch Band of Brothers again now.

Your right it was 2011 on this day. 😥. not many years and all the WWII vets will be gone. I think there is three of the Doolittle raiders left. I think they were the greatest generation.

Most of us are just Soft Pussys compared to the guys and girls who went to, and still do go to war for what we have today. We really have no idea of what hardship is.

My dad was a Seabee in WWII and spent some time in Australia, Bala. I've heard him say many times how much he liked it.
They're just about gone now.

+1. It is greatly taken for granted.

Rest in Peace Major.

There were some big camps near here that were used for training in the rainforest before going to Papua New Guinea. Do you know where he was in Aus??

my dads father was WW1, my mums father WW2, my dad and great uncle, korea, uncle vietnam.

I don't know where he was in Aus. and of course I can't ask now.
He was in New Guinea and he said you didn't want to go wandering off into the forest because there were still head hunters there.

Because he went to PNG, There is a chance that he trained on what is know as "The Atherton Tablelands" Its about 1-1/2 hrs from where i live and where I would ride my GSXR to.

i was very fortunate and was able to meet a WWII vet that lived next to my aunt and uncle. the old man was 92 and still cut his grass in 90+ heat. I went over there and talked to him a few times and one day i mentioned i was in the service and he thanked me for serving. i was taken aback and the only thing i could say was no thank you sir, we go through absolutely nothing compared to what you went through. I was also fortunate enough to be part of the 101st. Which most of you might not know is home to the Currahee brigade, which has the 506th in it is deactivating again.
