    Bully for him.

    My hat is off to all the veterans of that incredible accomplishment...including those in the first waves who sacrificed themselves so the rest could succeed.  Their collective courage was both common and extraordinary.  May we all answer the call in such a stalwart way, should our time come.

      served in the Royal Navy during WWII, and my uncle (paternal) served in the Pacific theater as a medic.  Both passed away in the past few years, and neither talked to family about their experiences after the war finished.
