I don’t know if it’s being reported in the US today, but you may wish to know about an incredible event being held right now in Sheffield to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the crash of the B17 Mi Amigo.
A man who survived the crash as an 8 year old boy who was playing in the park where the plane came to earth has pretty much dedicated his life to honouring the memory of the 10 airmen who died. The fly past to honour the anniversary is in 15 minutes and the main story on the BBC breakfast news here today.

Hope the link above works. If you have the time, the BBC IPlayer would be worth searching for footage of this morning’s coverage. Unfortunately, I missed a lot of it as I seem to have got some dust in my eyes....

Our millennials in general don't even know that there was a WWII let alone who fought in it and why!! The millennial bunch is definitely a "lost", historically stupid and incompetent generation which knows nothing about anything except how to play with their damiphones and computer games! The whole dambunch needs to be drafted and sent to the Mid-East for serving their time of duty!

There are three currently elected to the House of Representatives that I present to you on which I base my case!! Prove THEM worthy as two of them should be back in camel land and not in the U.S. House of Representatives! The third one just acts like a belfry that's short a few bats!
