Wouldn't it be great if we could somehow return all our WWII Dads or Grand-Dads for a while and gather them all in one place?
We could treat them to all the beer or hooch they wanted and just marvel at their stories.
Man, just think of that...
This great WWII GI song is a tribute to all of them, especially the brave paratroopers.
This dark, "gallows humor" helped them look death in the face and spit right in his damned eye.
I have 211 civilian/sport jumps but no military jumps, a whole 'nuther ballgame.
But it helps me understand what it entailed.
Admiration & respect to you all - past, present & future.
