    An American soldier, PFC Douglas Page, offers a mocking Nazi salute inside the roofless, bombed-out ruins of the Berliner Sportspalast, or Sport Palace — a venue where the Third Reich often held huge political rallies and where Hitler and others frequently speechified.

They sucked it up, drove on and got the job done! I don't know how I would have done it, had I been in their position. It's already so hard just being apart.
