I was born a few months before the German invasion of Poland. That makes me 70. I was too young to realize what was happening at that time. I just knew that there werent many men around those days. 16 million of them had gone to fight the war. Now we have a hard time putting 150,000 solideirs in Iraq. but I digress.

I ran across a wonderful post on Facebook. You can find it here. http://www.facebook.com/l/;www.williamvanderbloemen.com

All of us should stop today at 3:00 and have a moment of silence in honor of those who made it possible for us to live in freedom.  I know. Some of you are pacisfists and that’s okay. you can still give thanks.

So many have given so much for so many.

It’s hard to comprehend what the world would be today if Hitler and his allies had won the war. Give that some thought.

Fly your flag today. thats the least we can do.
