As we honor and cherish those left from the Greatest Generation, we should note the hard-won battles that changed the world we now live in.
There is much for us to learn and admire and share . . . with names now engraved into history . . .
and so many stories that one cannot fathom the number of lives changed by this battle. I myself met a Colonel who was shot in the back in the Battle of the Bulge, and recovered but still had almost constant pain from it.
For instance, I did not know that Adolf Hitler first officially outlined his surprise counter-offensive to his astonished generals on September 16, 1944.
