My Father was a WWII Veteran and I know that this would have been such an honor for him. It is good to be reminded of “The Greatest Generation”.
They gave without asking questions, they followed orders because of the greater cause. We all could continue to learn from them.

My father is one of the Vets in your video and I appreciate the excellent reporting.

I was looking for Mary Kay Redman tonight on Facebook, as I have been searching for all my classmates! I saw that she posted a comment on your site. I hope that you can maybe relay my email to her and tell her I said hi!
I had her as a teacher and she taught Sociology at Kearney Senior High! I always thought she was so funny and really did enjoy her class. It has now been almost 20yrs and am trying to stay in touch and get in touch with as many classmates and teachers as I can! I graduated back in ‘91 from Kearney Senior High. Thanks!
