The Greatest Generation [View all]

I know there can at times be negative connotations about the phrase Greatest Generation in regards to racism and other issues of the time.

I just would like to make a post to The Greatest Generation. Any blockbusters major action movie have tales that pale in the comparison to the men and women who fought the last centuries greatest villian, Adolf Hitler.

There are the tales of African Americans breaking boundaries in the true stories of the Red Tails, to the Japanese that fought in Italy to prove their loyalty to the United States. There are countless stories of French Resistance being put to death by firing squads of the Nazi Regime, to other heroics like escorting dozens of downed Allied Aircrew back to friendly lines.The movie storyline, "I showed a picture of my girl Betty Jean" and is then shot immediately following that are all based in tales of honor, courage, and at times during an all out war on humanity, to tales of compassion that would only seem to have been made up in the movies.

I salute you.
