  •  My Dad was a WWII navigator on a bomber (7+ / 0-)

    for 3 missions. 3rd mission plane shot down, and spent 2 years in German POW camp. My Dad and another crew member made it out of the bomber before it crashed, the rest died. The Germans were getting ready to execute all prisoners in the camp towards the end of the war, but the POWs were freed by U.S. troops before that happened.

    He never bragged about his service. Never had much use for war mongers either.

    In an insane society, the sane man would appear insane
