Youth and D Day vets

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Sometimes it seems that young people do not grasp the courage of the veterans of an older generation. Yesterdays Boston Herald had an article about a young woman going off to study in France who clearly is very proud of her D Day vet grandfather.

    I was halfway through the article before I realized that the Paul Cook it referred to was the Chief Paul Cook who had sat through many meetings and conferences on public safety issues with me. He was a great fire chief, very tech savvy and is a really nice guy. Oddly, in all my conversations with me he never mentioned his experiences in Normandy.

    The quote is long but I did not want to insert a link as the Herald pulls articles off the net after a few days.

    The French try not to remember the facts about their history in WWII.

    As well.

    German presumably.
