I don’t want to side track the other thread. Mike’s post made me do a little research.Soon there will be no more WWII vets. If someone joined in 1945 at 17 years old they would be 94 now. Not too many of them left.
The youngest to serve during WW2 were born in 1930. At least one is still alive. He’s 92. So maybe 10 more years, 15 at the very best.
When I first joined the work force these WW2 Veterans were still working. It was something to work beside these heroes.
I remember my GreatGrandfather we called him Papere. Came home from France in 1918.
Even the Korean war veterans I knew personally are all gone.
I really miss them all.
