A big fat DITTO!  :D  I just read some where that somebody said, "America is the land of the free, BECAUSE of the brave."  How true.

It is.    My next door neighbor is one of the few survivors of Wake Island.  He was only there a few weeks when he was captured and spent the rest of the war in prison camps.  I spoke with Mr. Leong, who is famous for his Cashew Chicken dish, and he told me about landing on the beach at Normandy and fighting his was east from there.  He had come from China only a year before, but wanted to fight for his new country.  I'll bet there are many, many other similar stories out there.  God bless them!!!!!!
