Just a reminder.  I haven't seen anything in the news at all.

Sadly, most of the men and women who remember that day and who served are no longer with us.. The present generation minus (collectors and historians) know nothing or care anything about what happened 70 plus years ago, sadly...

Give it a few more years and no one will care about what happened on 9/11,,,

It appears to be a generational thing...

Thanks for reminding us..

I conducted a tour for some Cavalry troopers at the museum on Monday May 7, and they didn't even know that the surrender was signed on that day, and it took affect on May 8 the following day.... Clueless....

Well, that is why we are here, to remind those of these important dates in history..
