WW II Photos: well worth viewing...

When you look at these photos you wonder how any of our fathers, older brothers, uncles, aunts made it back.

ALL Very Brave People. They took care of each other.

Terrific aircraft photos...

1. my uncle made it back

It was a stroke of luck that his gangrenous leg was amputated by an Army surgeon in a cave on Corregidor -- luck because he was kept in the prison camp there and not sent to the even more hideous work camps flung across the Pacific. A one-legged man could not do manual labor. That saved his life, although he was even so subjected to starvation and torture by the Japanese Imperial Army. He was a POW from the fall of Corregidor to the liberation more than three years later. "Never forget", he told us.
