Piper Bill Millin passes away at age 88.  <br /><br />To sum up, he went ashore at D-Day carrying only a dirk and his bagpipes.  And as the battle went on he marched up and down the beach playing his pipes.  I find that impressive.

Seriously dude.  This is a better place without you.  Why don't you go back to where ever it is that you came from.

Sounds like a real hero from a bygone day. I lost an uncle in Patton's assault on Anzio. Another uncle fought in a bloody battle in New Guinea, and another uncle was thrown in the brig for insulting an officer on Guam. He was a combat photographer and the officer took all his photos. Oh well.
Of all the traits of humanity, there is only one we do not share with other species, which sets us apart and makes us unique <br />-- the ability to imagine.

That really bums me out.<br />Seems odd that I remember seeing all the really old guys who were the WWI vets, and now I think only one is still with us. Now its the WWII guys who we are losing.<br />God Bless them.

God rest his brave soul.<br /><br />I hadn't heard of him but that is amazing. Today the enemy would target him but back then the world had more honor. Just like in WWII the red cross was not shot at but in Korea and from then on it was, is, a bullseye.

<br /><br />If you have ever seen the movie The Longest Day then you will have at least learned of him.
