    My grandfather did aerial recon for the Army Air Force in WWII. With the photos he kept he made albums and they were eventually passed onto us. There are some great overhead shots of Normandy and the preparation for Normandy.

    Luckily Hitler was too busy worrying about Pas-de-Calais. He may have been able to throw back the forces with a better fortified Atlantic Wall.

    Of course, after the landings, we were too caught up in the Bocage and were almost rebuked as a result. Thankfully Ike finally got Patton in there, Op. Cobra got underway, and the rest they say...is history.

    "These are some amazing pics, I`m glad I don`t have to live though that time of war and suffering."

    although different the wars we face today are in their own right hell for our veterans. i for one think a draft would make the country more aware of the seriousness of Iraq and Afghanistan. i think we like to feel like its far away and not gonna affect us, i think a draft would create way more consciousness, more protests, more pressure on the government to do more and bring our boys and girls home.

    Also, my grandfather was in the Navy. I don`t think he did anything involving D-Day, though. I`m pretty sure he was in the Pacific.

    My grandfather was in the Royal Navy, he was a gunner on the Battleship HMS Revenge. I always loved hearing his stories about the war.

    He lied about his age to sign up, and enlisted one month before his 16th birthday. I was always amazed that such a meek, mild-mannered man had personally sunk German U-Boats and took many lives during the war!

    He was also assigned to convoy duties in Operation Margarine, where they shipped the entire British gold bullion reserve to Halifax, Canada for fear of invasion of Britain - Not that any of the crew knew what cargo they had been guarding across the Atlantic until they were safe and sound in Halifax!

    He also told me how there was a lot of chivalry in the early days of the war - if an enemy ship was sunk, the attacker would go to great lengths to rescue the enemy sailors from the water. Didn`t last - things got dirty towards the end!

    These were great and brave men, and we all owe them a huge debt.

    What about the disabled? Or do you just mean like, men AND women... there was some talk a few years back of a possible draft, and whether or not they would include women.

    ""I for one salute all those brave men and women who died for all our freedoms!"

    They died for territorial conquest."

    Honestly, it depends on which war you refer to.

    I mean, while all wars fought technically are for territorial conquest... with the exception of WWI and WWII, which were more retaliation than anything...

    The Revolutionary and Civil Wars, while territory was obtained, were ALSO fought to defend our rights and/or freedom.

    WWI and WWII were "uh uh, bitch, you don`t hit us and get away with it."

    Nothing since then has been "to defend our freedom" because as of then, no country has been big enough or strong enough to even remotely threaten our freedom and rights as American citizens.

    And while you *can* defend something that`s not in danger, there`s no point to it and you`re not really doing much.

    I`m with you dudeman, should have gone into Russia while we had the army there. If it weren`t for all the politicians we could have used the Wehrmacht in an invasion.

    At the very least we could have beaten them back into their borders. Patton and Churchill saw what was coming and no one cared.

    vv "I`m with you dudeman, should have gone into Russia while we had the army there."

    Dudeman, Dakkar, don`t you think taking on Russia might have been a tad ambitious? The Red Army rolled into Berlin with 2.5 million troops. And they had millions more in reserve... Besides, the Allies had taken a licking through D-Day, Operation Market Garden, The Battle of the Bulge and on to Berlin...

    Maybe taking on Russia at that time would have been a bridge too far, even for the Americans?

    It definitely would have been ambitious, and it would have been a tough war to win. Looking at it realistically, the world was war weary, but with Russia`s conscription, they could force support for another war.

    But if there were one General to lead an assault against the Russians, it would have been Patton. Rommel knew how to beat the Russians and its quite safe to assume Patton would too seeing as their styles were very similar.

    Plus the US had an advantage in air power, and with the airfields in Berlin they could do some damage out to Ukraine. The Soviets had the upperhand in ground force numbers and the sheer power of armor so it would have been bloody. And some would claim the Cold War was less bloody than an attack against the Russians.

    Still, I wish we at least would have struck against them to prevent the Eastern Bloc. That would have been easier to manage, and have a much better opportunity of success.

    "And Iraq had WMDs." you know that gets used alot, but lets analyze this a bit further, my previous comment was as how there isn`t enough awareness about what`s really going on. whether the war be necessary or not i was talking about helping our soldiers who have to fight in them regardless, and they do so valiantly.

    also maybe there where no WMD`s in Iraq but guess what most americans oppose this war as our presence is not haulting sectarian violence anyway and we attacked on a false premise. however if violence is controlled eventhough this war was started in a bad way, hopefully a restructured free iraq can exist and govern itself.

    there is nothing more that i would like than for our troops, all of them, to be home defending the country rather than being used as an expansionist force. obama said he would bring them home but like the liar he is has done no such thing.

    My grandfather was part of the British assault in a Sherman tank during the Normandy D-Day landings. Thankfully he made it home (thanks USA for the Sherman), and told me the stories many years later. I just wish that I had written everything down that he told me - as he is unfortunately no longer with us. I always remember him and his friends on D-Day.

    I think what brings it home to me, about the courage these men must have had, is the opening scenes from the film Saving Private Ryan.

    We will remember them

    If I am a tool for trying to look at the world objectively instead of subduing to indoctrination, then what should I call you?


    And my point is:
    War is rarely about freedom, it`s a dispute between regimes that lead to the death of millions and a subjective look at history from the victors viewpoint.

    All those young men who died- twice last century ( and more) they went and were massacred. Every V day my grandmother cried- because all the young men went away and they never came home.What a terrible loss, and how great a sacrifice made. The politics is one matter, but the personal price for all concerned was enormous.

    kairobert - So WWII wasn`t about freedom? Tell that to the flipping jews you ignorant cur. WWII was the only war in the history of mankind which can be incontrovertibly put down as good vs. evil. Hitler was a heinous bastard who had to be stopped, and it was our brave soldiers who did it. Not to be too melodramatic, but our troops SAVED THE WORLD. Even objectively it comes out the same way. Only one who was severly impared by nescience would have any other view of it. Now go watch a Band of Brothers marathon you unappreciative prick.

    "Hitler was a heinous bastard who had to be stopped, and it was our brave soldiers who did it. Not to be too melodramatic, but our troops SAVED THE WORLD."

    Actually, Soviet troops originally discovered the camps and liberated Auschwitz. Americans helped, but the Soviets originally started.

    So it was a joint collaboration of "saving the world" between British, Soviet, and American troops.

    We, however, wouldn`t have even been involved if Pearl Harbor hadn`t happened, which caused us to formally declare war on the Axis... out of retaliation, not a need to save the freedom of the world.


    and, @ oceanbeast:

    Originally, a majority of Americans supported the sending of troops into the Middle East, out of vengeance from 9/11. We didn`t begin to oppose it until much later when we realized that we weren`t over there solely to kick their asses and get the hell out.

    "WWII was the only war in the history of mankind which can be incontrovertibly put down as good vs. evil."

    There`s no such thing as good vs. evil. It`s only our viewpoints that separate us. The nazis thought that what they were doing was good, and those trying to stop them were evil.

    "Now go watch a Band of Brothers marathon you unappreciative prick."

    Well that explains why your screenname is Currahee and you`re only a teenager. Is that all you know about the war? For shame.

    Absolutely, when I said "our" I meant the allies, not just the U.S.

    "Well that explains why your screenname is Currahee and you`re only a teenager. Is that all you know about the war? For shame."

    Yes, that is why my screen name is Currahee, and yes I am a teenager. But no, I have watched dozens of History Channel programs, Ken Burns` documentary, and several books on WWII. Though I admitt I know less than I would like about the subject, Band of Brothers is far from the only source of WWII knowledge I have, I simply think it embodies the spirit of the soldiers better than anything I have ever seen before.

    "Originally, a majority of Americans supported the sending of troops into the Middle East, out of vengeance from 9/11. We didn`t begin to oppose it until much later when we realized that we weren`t over there solely to kick their asses and get the hell out."

    yes even I supported the war, but i think by now you know that upwards of 90% of the population knows the truth of and about the war. however had we never debunked hussein he would just be another crazy motherdrater the world dosent need. we already have to worry about Ahmadinejad (although not fully in power, he wields alot of influence, kim jong-il, castro, ortega, hugo chavez, the palestinians, evo morales, kirchner, the middle east however i think will never be stable, these people fight for ideals not motives.

    And I`m sorry, but the Nazis were evil. Good and evil may be abstract ideas, but I think genocide is quite a good description of an evil regime if looked at objectively. Hitler was doing terrible, terrible things and had to be stopped before his reign of terror spread throughout Europe and across the Atlantic.

    Also simim23, you`re correct. We attacked out of retaliation, not out of a need to save the free world, but you cannot deny that whether or not it was the purpose, that is exactly what the Allies did.

    Hitler had some pretty drated up Nationalist views, but what makes you any better when acting like a nationalist yourself?

    Look at the world objectively.

    What makes me better is that I`m not going around killing everyone I have the slightest problem with. But I see your point. I am indeed a nationalist, I love my country. I just think the respect and gratitude we owe our soldiers is enormous, and would like to honor them.

    "You are the only one here acting like a nationalist."

    Objectivity is not a nation.

    vv No, but Douchebag is a country, and you`re the f*cking President. You said that the hundreds of thousands of Allied dead "didn`t die for our freedoms... they died for territorial conquest".

    Kairobert, Hitler was dry-raping greater Eurasia in the ass without lube, genociding his way across the continent, and ethically cleansing entire populations of human beings. And when the Allies stood up (and gave their lives - their ONLY life) to defeat that wankrag, you suggest that they were doing so for "Territorial Conquest"?

    Show some respect, take some remedial history classes, and then promptly shut the f*ck up.

    In that order.

    Justifying nationalism was just how Nazi Germany began.

    OK, I literally just sat my Nazi Germany history paper a few hours ago.

    Kairobert: Justifying nationalism was not "just how Nazi Germany began." Nazi Germany began because the democratic government before it f***ed pretty much everything up and the Nazis were seen as the only party that could really sort out Germany`s problems. And they did in fact sort out the economy brilliantly, so much so that Germany went from one of the weakest country`s in the world (after WW1) to one of the strongest in the space of about 10 years. Other country`s have used similar economic policies as the Nazis in times of crisis. (Amongst other reasons).

    To sum up, you don`t know what your talking about.

    Also, you seem to have the wrong definition of nationalism. Every country in the world is nationalist in one way or another. Being nationalist means you are proud of and act in the interests of your own country over other countries, which isn`t always a bad thing. But for the Nazis it was.
