I think its appropriate that we take a moment to reflect on the sacrifices made by the Greatest Generation on this, the 59th of VE Day. I'm blessed that I will once again be able to share it with my father, Cpl. Robert Lieberman.

Yes, fifty-nine years ago, the US and it's Allies brought a mad man whose name is still a synonym terror to the end of his rule. Sadly, it took 285,000+ Americans to do it. Well done, boys. Rest in peace.

I noticed it wasn't on the evening news. CBS (communist broadcast system) did say a thing.

VE Day,... 285,000 KIA...if cbs or the rest of the media slanted WWII like today...there wouldn`t be a VE Day or a VJ Day... and we`d be speaking German or Japanese...or Russian for that matter...and that`s right out of the mouths of several WWII Veterans who visit my shop on occasion,my .02,out. wink.gif

Gen. Patton did think we should re-arm the Germans and go after Stalin... He was right. wink.gif
