Yea, I watched that last night. Pissed me off!!
They should have hung those generals up by their nuts for sending those young doughboys to die with just hours left in the war.

I have nothing but the utmost respect for our VFWs. But it's they that cause the accidents. Ironic and sad that today they killed one of their own.

Sadly, the driver, (now a murderer...) probably has no recollection of what he did.

Yet another reason for mandatory Driver License Retesting every 5 years past the age of 55.

uh, i agree with you on the mandatory testing. But dont you think 55 is a little young for that? At 55 people are still fully fuctional and have 10+ years of work letft in them. I am thinking somewhere more around 70.

saying the driver has no recollection of what he did



just because there was a car accident means the driver has alzheimers?

WOW! Reminds me of Patton....

Except that it was a narrow enough miss for him to walk away laughing about it.

RIP

In December of 1945 he suffered a broken neck in a car accident and died less than two weeks later.
I don't think he walked away laughing from it...:roll:
