This picture is so moving. Not many of us could watch our friends die right next to us and continue to fight on. Our country is not perfect, but it's ours and our troops give up all their basic necessities to keep it that way. Remember that next time you bitch about your freedom
I do not know this little boy or his family but I have shed tears for them today. Something we should never forget is that some people give everything and more so we can be free. This little boy is a shining example of that sacrifice that his father made for us all. I will pray for him and his family and ask God to bless them all and give them the strength to carry on. One day this little boy will join his father in Heaven and never have to let him go again. God Bless Them!!
A captured teenage Nazi is in tears as he holds out his wounded arm for a sympathetic American to examine as they wait for a medic in Cherbourg. The French were sometimes puzzled (and angered) by Americans' kind treatment of prisoners, including giving them oranges, which they had not seen for years. God Bless America!!
Vernon Baker, who was the only living black veteran awarded the Medal of Honor for valor in World War II, receiving it 52 years after he wiped out four German machine-gun nests on a hilltop in northern Italy, died Tuesday at his home near St. Maries, Idaho. He was 90.
