V-E Day Plus 65 Years

On May 8th, 1945 Germany surrendered to the Allies thus ending World War II in Europe. A few days earlier General George Patton and the U.S. Third Army halted his eastern advance at Pilsen, Czechoslovakia.

Sixty-five years after the surrender let us not forget the sacrifice millions of soldiers and civilians made in defence of Europe during World War II. These people helped preserve freedom for millions today. We say thank you in our small way.

  1. My dad served in the Philippines during WWII. He always said he didn't see much but was scared to death. He also said that about a month after Hiroshima, he and a buddy went and explored the bomb site while on a leave, despite being told to stay away. (Dumbasses kids!)
