Its About Time

      I was walking along the Utah Beach shoreline with a few companions in the direction of Omaha Beach not aware of the problems our men were having. Ocean waves washed up all kinds of wreckage and debris. We stumbled upon what looked like a side of beef floating back and forth in the shallows. I suggested that they leave it alone.

     One of the guys picked up a piece of wood and turned it over. It was a human torso without a head and extremities with its larynx flopping about.

     What Spielberg depicted was as close the truth as realitly would allow and it's about time the world saw how unglamorous and disgusting war can be

     It is about time we learned the truth about war..
