WW II MEMORIAL
I see on the Nat'l news tonite where the WW II Memorial was opened to visitors today.
Both Korea and Nam have had Memorials there for several years. I guess their generations had better politicians than ours. Fifty nine years after the fact, we finally have a Memorial to 16.2 million young, and some not so young, men who laid their lives on the line for their country. Some 400 thousand didn't make it back
I'm not sure of the figures but I'd hazard a guess there aren't but about one third still breathing. Of those probably three quarters will never see the Memorial due to health or financial reasons.
It won't much bother me, cause I still think it looks more like a memorial to ancient Roman Legions, than to 16.2 millioncitizen soldiers, sailors, marines, coast guard and merchant marines
