A Fresh Perspective<< All Articles
A friend gave Wayne and me the PBS series The War on DVD. We’ve watched a segment every night and are caught up in the tremendous sacrifice the men and women of our parents’ generation made in the war years. My own father was taken as a POW, captured during the Battle of the Bulge, and held in Germany until the end of the war. I phoned my uncle, a former Marine, this morning and learned he was on Guadalcanal and several other islands in the South Pacific. This series has given me a fresh perspective of what it means to be part of The Greatest Generation.
