Your personal stories of loved ones have profoundly touched my heart.

My mother was eighteen when France was liberated. She will always hold the American GI's whom liberated her village and country in the highest esteem and regard. She was in awe of these young men who fought so courageously against the Nazis.

My heart is filled with sorrow for all the men and women who have died in war. I am numb thinking about the ones who survive and live their life with horrific memories.

John Finn may you rest in peace.

God bless you and your families, today and always.

If Coz is referring to the treatment of our POW's in prison camps, he is correct.

The Nazis treated the British and American Pow's much better than the Japanese treated them.

The mortality rate was about 5% for US/Brit POWs held by the Germans in comparison to Japanese prison camps where the rate was between 33-50%, depending on the location.

It's all bad, yes.

It was my honor on Monday to fly the missing man at 4 Veterans ceremonies
in the Los Angeles area. There is a lot of emotion both on the ground and air to be the #3 with smoke on to pull off formation, climb and dissapear
to the west.
Bless those who gave- and most to those that gave all.........
