For goodness sakes, people! You guys picking apart this man's story is ruining a perfectly good tale. True or not, what this man has told in both
this and his massively long introduction thread is some of the most welcome, if not entertaining stories submitted on this site in quite a while. In
these days of war, civil strife, economic breakdown, and hostile corporate takeovers of nations, it is quite imperative to not only listen to, but
also learn from, the experiences and tales of our elders.
On the day of my grandfather's funeral, I found out that he was one of only 3 survivors in his platoon in the Assault on Omaha Beach. I realized at
that point that there was so much about him that i never knew, and that i would never get the chance to ask him about it. I regret this, but i go on,
seeking to learn where i may.
Whether on not "Mr Typer" is genuine is something that one has to decide for ones self. I do know that as time goes on, I get incidents and times
mixed up, and i would bet my eye teeth that most of you guys out there do also. This doesn't make any of our experiences any less true, yet while Mr
Typer is trying to recall events of 40-70 years ago, you guys are expecting him to recall precise dates and times. One of you is even insisting on Mr
Typer in divulging his Identity! In this day and age of cyber warfare over privacy? All the threads on ATS about SOPA and all the the other acts of
the government that we so happily complain about and you insist that this man reveal himself. Hypocrites!
Please, Mr Typer, regale us with your tales of yesteryear. Tell us of mysteries, of sea voyages. Tales of flights beyond our wildest dreams. Take us
far from the troubles of today, if only for an instant.
Yes, Mr Typer. Please tell.
