Truly the greatest generation. My grandfather's stories from WW2 and just in general are some of the most treasured memories in my life. He had a few stories of how masonry affected the 2 sides during some battles.
ETA: what are the chances if everyday Americans in this generation were drafted into a war torn world that they would step up and perform like this generation did?

nice story. My father was a B-17 pilot. I got to go in one of the planes when it visited the airport along with a B-24 and P-51. Pretty awesome to hear and see them fly over. They're also very cramped inside. Couldn't imagine being in one with fighter planes and flak all around.
