My late father’s life, and millions of others, were spared because President Truman had the stones to do the right thing.

My dad served in Europe with Patton’s army. After VE day he was sent to the US to train for the invasion of Japan. Truman did the right thing!
Back in 1966 at the Roswell (NM) public library, there was a book on WWII. At the page where the first Atomic Bombs were used someone had written in ink, THUMAN—MURDERER!
Underneath it was another hand written paragraph from another person explaining just why Truman authorized the dropping of the bombs.
I have recently wondered if the liberalization, sissification, whatever you want to call it, of our country, cannot be directly related to the fact that was lost so many men of the caliber of your father, who were willing to sacrifice themselves for their family, their country.
Add to your father’s generation, those who died in Vietnam, WWI, the Civil War, etc. These were men who believed in right and wrong. They believed in taking action against wrong, and putting everything on the line for the sake of a better future. Too many of those men were killed. We are left without their offspring in many cases. How many millions of Americans were never born because these men were killed in war? Makes me wonder what the US would be like if we could have the influence of their legacies.

....my Dad too....he went through the Okinawa campaign.... after that fanatical/suicidal Jap resistance everybody knew the invasion of the home islands would be hell.
