Old NFO reluctantly reminds us about yet ANOTHER segment of those who battled evil in WWII. Those who are passing before us.
The Naval Submariners.
Part of said post, below. Thank you for reminding us, good sir!
~The U.S. Submarine Veterans of World War II disbanded at the end of its convention Sept. 7 in Norfolk, Va. Local chapters now must decide whether to continue operating under another name or to dissolve as well.
A large group at one time, now the YOUNGEST member is 86, and the oldest is over 100, and they have less than 1000 members left…~
This made me wonder about a couple things: How much longer before ALL the WWII Veterans are gone? And
The War On Terror(ism) is so fragmented, so diverse, so compartmentalized. Will there even BE organizations to remind us of the brave actions of our warriors, both military and civilian, who kept us from further harm?
Or will subsequent regimes make such organizations illegal?
