alienated: I hope to take my Grandfather to DC, at some time, soon- He served on the USS Birmingham in the big one in both theaters ( he gave me a piece of her deck when i met him ) and was wounded twice. He then had the brilliant idea to join the Army so he could serve in Korea. Old tough guy is ,well, old tough guy .I just wish we had a rosie the riveter museum also - my adoptive mom built aircraft for both ww2 and korea .Never forget the GREATEST generation folks. For most of us, sacrafice is not having another beer. For them- it was gas rationing, tire rationing, and buying war bonds./i dont really have a point
