Not sure how the IJ could forget to put a link to the pictures. I think I found them though here
Great pictures of true american hero's.

Thanks for the link. It's a no-brainer why the IJ forgets things like that. It's a miracle they get anything right lately with their morale and staffing being so bad.

Good job- it's vital to preserve this history. I'm not sure that i agree with the comment "I think the people there will think it's cute." ....

I actually posted first in the comments section asking why no link to the images was posted. My post was removed.
Anyway, thanks for posting the link, the images are great!

"but some depict life in liberated German towns."
Nice story, but why must these writers continuously practice revisionist history???? German towns weren't "liberated" ... they were conquered.
French towns liberated? Yes. Belgian? Yes. Polish? Yes. German? No.
tr.v. lib·er·at·ed, lib·er·at·ing, lib·er·ates
1. To set free, as from oppression, confinement, or foreign control.

The greatest generation by far, thanks to all the men and women of that era for what they did for all of us. Thanks for sharing your fathers pictures, proud would be an understatement, he looked like a great guy.
