    Should let this thread go, but just keep finding good stuff:

    "..Augusta Chiwy, ‘Forgotten’ Wartime Nurse, Dies at 94 ........ Ms. Chiwy (pronounced CHEE-wee) was mentioned in passing only as “Anna,” a black nurse from Congo, in Stephen Ambrose’s book “Band of Brothers.” She was played by Rebecca Okot in an episode of the television series based on the book..".

    "..Augusta Chiwy, a Belgian nurse whose unsung bravery in saving countless American soldiers wounded in the Battle of the Bulge was belatedly celebrated in 2011, died on Sunday near Brussels..".

    I can legally defend myself against bad guys, but there is no legal defense against bad guys with badges.
    I do not kill animals, nor do I pay other people to kill them for me.

    I'm so grateful for everything our country was able to do during that conflict. The airborne rangers and the soldiers that went ashore in the first wave were the most courageous of all.

    My Dad didn't land at Normandy. However, leading up to June 6, he and his group worked straight through for several days. Guys were sleeping on their feet leaning against the wall.
    Dad was in the Mighty 8th - 94th Bomb Group. Those guys were heroes to me. They pounded the Third Reich mercilessly for a long time -- and suffered dearly in the process.

    With all of the death and destruction, how can anyone ever justify starting a war? Obviously one must defend themselves, but to start a war with the full knowledge of what an all out war means. It's such a horrific waste in so so many ways.
