Well said, Gary -
I, also, am very humbled. Each time I think I might know something about history, the men (and Lady!) on this forum gently remind me (without even knowing it) that I am am just a beginner.
And - just for the record:
Gary, I will read your posts because you have an interest in a wide range of historical subjects of which I know very little about - but would like to learn.
By the way, just bought "A World At Arms" by Weinburg, because of the recommendations on this forum. Can't put it down, a very different "no bunk or myths" point of view of the war.
Matt - am very pleased that you were willing to introduce yourself. That takes, in this day and age, courage and self confidence.
Thank You for your service. What MOS in the Army? The Marines are good, and have an excellent PR machine. However the hard fact remains, that the US Army carries the burden of National Defense - and has done an outstanding job.
