Response to inanna (Original post)

12. Every male in my family who was of age was in the military in WWII.

Father in England & France - Army sergeant.

His brother in France - Army. 2 Bronze Stars.

Maternal uncles - one in the Pacific (Army) despite being blind in one eye. The other was rejected by the USAF due to a heart murmur and went to Canada, where he joined the RCAF and was shot down over the Channel. His body was never recovered.

My 4'11" grandmother was in the Civil Air Patrol.

Third uncle was still a minor in the 40s, but served in Korea during that (ongoing) war.

These neo-Nazis in any guise, shape or form are an obscenity and traitors to their country - just like their poster-boy 45.

When is enough enough?
