  • Very interesting Chris, someone should record their stories and write a book on our local Veterans.

    I think we, as a society, have a problem because of our lack of knowledge of the past, whether it be about Vietnam, WWII, or the Great Depression. History has always been a weak area for most Americans and I think it creates a strong tendency for us to be dangerously gullible and naive. If people don't know the cost or struggle involved in getting to where we are, then we are more apt to repeat the mistakes of the past.

    Learning from our elders about what life was like during these periods of extremely hard times can only make us appreciate more the lives that we have.

    "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." George Santayana

  • Bob Moss is a super gentleman, and as Chris said, a walking encyclopedia about things military. Thank you Bob for your tireless efforts. And thank you and all the others who put their lives on the line for us during WWII. I don't even want to think about where we would be today, had your efforts not been successful. You deserve our respect and thanks.
