    Default I met Babe Heffron Today

    For all who do not know Babe is a WW II hero along with Wild Bill, they live in South Philly and helped with the HBO series band of brothers, also they wrote this book which is great:

    Anyway I met him walking down Market St. today and talked with him for awhile which he told me some good stories about him and Wild Bill.
    I also thanked him for his service to our country and wished him well.

    Very cool! It still amazes me how much that generation of men and women did for this country, and for the whole world quite frankly.

    You guys should study WWII in depth. In another life I was a military historian (before I realized that : 1) it is not a good idea to make your hobbies into your job and 2) that teachers don't get paid very much $$$ )



    We were SO CLOSE to losing WWII. Hitler came so close to winning it. It was a combination of luck.... And mostly the effort and pain of MEN like Heffron who made sure, through blood, sweat, toil, and tears, that the Third Reich WASN'T a thousand Year Reich!!! We owe them - FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES.

    Never forget that.
