Too good not to pass along

Postby m3a1 » September 5th, 2018, 12:04 pm

This is making the rounds again. A friend sent it via email and I thought it was good enough to share here. Message follows -

This is a VERY touching video, actually a piece of film that has been made into a video, this is one that is NOT photo shopped, it's the real scene!
Notice in the opening shot you'll see the gunner's position is all shot to hell while the pilot's cockpit ahead of it is undamaged.
Later on notice the corpsman taking a fingerprint of the deceased gunner, before the film continues, then showing the chaplain saying the final prayers, followed by taps, then the sailors push the aircraft and our patriotic airman over the side and watch it sink into the distance sea. Here's one for a serious conversation with your kids. THIS WAS REAL!

This is what 18 year old "kids" were doing in 1944. No safe spaces, no hurtful unthinkable remarks that they couldn't cope with, just dying for their country so the ungrateful, uninformed people of today could act like fools decades later..............

This 2 minute video is pretty moving. Worth your while.
