Worked for me; last time in 'gay Paris' ....ah, je suis Canadien......then I walked into La Legion Etrangere (I know, what the heck was I thinking...lol). Well, at least I got to see Mylene Farmer in concert!! Then on to Aubagne (outside that filthy, nasty city of Marseilles) for the Legion Etrangere selection center.....ah, La Mafia Anglaise!!!
So, I see everyone is still agreeing to disagree.....sorry, gotta put my two cents in after watching these forums spiral into quite the negative.....guys, I know debate can be healthy, but some of these threads are really bringing me down....I came on here to find some players and have a little fun....what happened? Almost 70 years later and some of these threads are quite hostile.......it's over, what's done is done......why spoil it for the rest of us, especially some of us new guys, who just want to play this game?
Yeah, I had quite a few relatives serve in the 'big one'; one in the 1st Mardiv from Guad till the end (one of those lucky ones) and also one in the 8th Air Force (I have his in-flight flask..damn alcoholic...lol). Did they ever talk about it? Not once, and I tried, being the young historical type; never said a word. One was on the Arizona before Pearl and got transferred right before the attack....I have his silk neckerchief with the Arizona in the middle (kind of an early silk screen....ish)!
Anyway, I guess I just want these threads to get back into the normal, friendly ones that they were before the A-Bomb or strategic discussions.....I hate seeing games end or heated, personal issues from something that happened over 60 years ago.....let's get back to UV guys
Btw, here's a view from just outside of Brest, France back in 1988......no, those 16's weren't aimed at Les Phoques; oops, sorry, I mean the French !!
I burned through a few rolls to get this shot!!! Notice the VW being launched out of the rear turret...oops, I mean projectile....lol!
'morituri te salutamus'
errr, maybe for this game....'veni, vedi, interfectus'
