Still, let us remember that
generation that took us through
The Great War...The Western Front,
The Italian Campaign in the Alps, ops
in The Middle East, the forerunner of
The Eastern Front of the second war...
all incredibly brutal...those who served
are all now gone..."gone west" as they
used to say. And, now, sadly, largely
forgotten here in the US.

Lest WE forget...

No forgetting here; my grandfather received a severe GSW to the left thigh in the Meuse-Argonne offensive on Oct. 2, 1918. I'm still trying to learn more about him and his time in France in WWI, but sadly he died in 1938, and my grandmother has been gone for 25 years. I've only started to get more details. And the more I learn about "The Great War", the more I respect the constitution of the men who fought it - on all sides.

Thanks from Littlejohn
