Thanks for the post CC and all the replies from everyone. My favorite Veterans Day memory is listening to a Normandy survivor share his recollections of storming the beach to a church congregation of mostly 20-somethings (including me and my new wife at the time). It was shortly after "Saving Private Ryan" was released and and he encouraged us all to watch it as he had never seen a more realistic portrayal of the horrors and heroism of that experience. Everyone in the room was touched and humbled. He shared his story with humility, conveying the terrors and uncertainty felt by him and his brothers in arms that day... We were touched deeply and I'll never forget it.

Very nice response and I appreciated reading it. War is a terrible time.

Thanks very much
