Welcome to the forum! Good luck on your search.
Wars are rarely fought in black and white, but in infinite shades of grey

Welcome Mantlefan2010! Tell us a little bit about yourself. Are you a Mickey Mantle fan? A New Yorker?

Freedom is precious and many gave their lives for it. It is the duty of the future generation
to remember that sacrifice, and offer some sacrifice for themselves if Freedom is threatened.

Cecil Earl Workman, WWII Veteran, "L" Co., 129th Inf. Regt., 37th Inf. Div.

Finally someone else from my neck of the woods!

Welcome.
The war against Russia will be such that it cannot be conducted in a knightly fashion. This struggle is one of ideologies and racial differences and will have to be conducted with unprecedented, unmerciful and unrelenting harshness. -Adolf Hitler
