    Thanks to all who have served and will serve.

    "To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations."

    The "war to end all wars" it was called. My great uncle came home with 1/2 of one lung. He lived into his 70s and was a heck of a man. The county road is named after him and well deserved--he had six purple hearts and a chest full of medals including a bronze star.
    The first only set up Germany for a second--they "trained" civilian pilots and ship crews readying for war. Hitler strained the rules at every turn till he was ready for war.
