    This was meant to be a very thoughtful thread about commemorating the anniversary of D-Day, but ol' butterfingers fucked it up. :hat:

    Maybe it turned out better this way anyway. :dontknow:

    has it been 67 years already?


    back in the days when there was a sensible reason to go to war.


    thank you, Boys.

    Imagine if you had to go to war in WWI and WWII. Those pesky Germans made life hell for mankind.

    Mrs. Selfestitle and I are visiting our friend Harry today.

    He served on a British minesweeper as part of the invasion.

    Pretty sure this will be Harry's last D-Day anniversary.

    The British eventually broke the stalemate with the invention of the tank. The tank's tracks were modeled after American farm equipment. True story.

    none of my relatives were in Normandy that day, as they were fighting for the Soviets. but a few of my buddies had relatives that fought for the Allies. they're all long gone now.

    thank you, Boys.

    Your relatives must have experienced a whole different level of hell, Naz. The eastern front was war at its worst.

    The Red Army marched through Poland with a vengeance. They raped the women in Poland on the regular. Even camp survivors.

    it was very difficult to get specific stories out of my grandpa. he did tell me that he never knowingly killed another soldier, despite having several point-blank opportunities. he never made it further west than Austria, until he defected in the late 1940s.
