[quote]It's why Patton is buried in Luxembourg.[/quote] I thought there was an offer to bring Patton home to be buried in Arlington but his wife (or somebody or another) insisted he remain in Europe because he always expressed wishes to be buried amongst his men. ...

re: Saving Private Ryan question about Tom Hank's character - ChewyDante
I just recently discovered that my grandmother's brother, who was killed on Iwo, is buried here in Louisiana. I thought for sure there was no way they would bring his body all the way home but sure enough they did. As much interest as I've always had in WWII I've never really read anything about th...

If it were up to me we would stop them from crossing legally into the state of Louisiana until they learn how to get in the mother fricking right lane when they are going 70 mph and not passing. I swear to God it's a Texas plate at least 70% of the time I encounter this bull shite. ...

re: Which wars since WWII 'kept us free?' - ChewyDante
[quote]WWII was pretty much cut and dry[/quote] Yeah, instead of just leaving a German/Polish war, which likely would have turned into a German-Soviet war, we were sucked into bailing the French and British out of another preemptive power politics conflict with Germany that they were on the brink...

We lost a regional to Stony Brook with one of our better teams a few years ago and gave them a victory lap around Alec Box. So yeah, fat chance on an LSU melt over losing a regional. Baseball is a finicky game at times and LSU has the best baseball fans in the country so DWI....

re: WWII/Cold War Thread - ChewyDante
Or maybe Hitler's primary goal was the defeat of Bolshevism and an expansion of Germany in the East from the beginning?
