Welcome visitor # 200144!

You are about to embark on a journey in time !

A "Time-Capsule" if you please - back to WW II - People - Places and Bombers. A time when waving the Stars and Stripes - hearing a military band- having the heart beat a little faster - all meant "Patriotism" for which 500,000 Americans gave lives that today's FREEDOM is preserved for you.
