It's so important to learn from eye-witnesses of history. I really enjoyed reading this.

Mr. Baker served the country well. So many people complain about this or that. Here's a guy that just did his duty and lived his life with no complaints or expectations. Kudos to Mr. Baker for a life well-lived.

I'm surprised our local holocaust deniers aren't here disputing this local veteran's eye-witness account.

What do you mean by "Jew Conspiracy"?

Can you explain that?

Mr. Baker is a hero like the other men who served during WWII. My father started in the 66th and was transferred into the 42nd infantry division.

If this gets to Mr. Baker the 42 nd has a facebook page and would probably want him to join the association.
