I want to tell these men thank you. What they did is incredible. The stories they have to tell may never be published in the history books and taught in our schools. It is ashame that our schools are choosing not to teach about the great feats these men and women endured so that we could live the lifestyles we have today. I wish I could hear the stories these men and women have first hand. I hope that someone takes the time to put together a video, book, or some sort of media so these stories are never forgotten. To forget the stories these men and women have would be a greater tragedy than the all the lives lost on during the war.
