If today you would ask any WWII vet if they could serve their country today, most would say yes and only ask where and when.
Most Vets I know feel that way. The saddest day of my life was when I took off a uniform.
911 Called and it kind of hurt to hear I was too old.
I got out twenty years ago this last Jul . Now they say I am way too old
I am pretty sure those WW II Vets hear it too.
World War II Era Vets are no doubt the Greatest Generation I have seen in my life.
The Korean War has never really stopped and those who fought or have served there since know the real deal.
History was not fair to Korean war vets it was not WW2 and it was just a police action.
Tough battles. Porkchop Hill was no picnic either .
Vietnam veterans were awesome and guys from Latrapper's generation trained me.
Vietnam vets got a pretty bad deal from society, the press and anti war demonstrations.
At the same time I think Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines
who served in the Middle East in the last 20 years
have seen a very different kind of war
that my own generation has never seen before.
When I think about it I know I am probably way too old.
Its never been easy but the job always gets done.
Freedom is never free.God bless and protect troops.
