I have met old WW2 vets. Each November we (my generation) meet up on the 11th. Thats what I am used to, old WW2/Korea vets. I guess my parents knew or met vets that were my age. Did they look up to them the same way I looked up to the old senior citizen vets? Now with the Iraq/Afghanistan vets coming home, do you see them in the same light as WW2/Korea vets?

My grandpa is a Veteran, he was a Yugoslav Partisan, joined Partisans as a kid. Yet my other grandpa was with Germans, he was in the squad that was under SS command. So I'm both Axis and Ally.

I served in Bosnia with the CF from 2000-01. I phone and visit some of my Regiment's WW 2 guys when I can and once got to speak with one of our WW 1 guys.

When I was in service at the German "Zivildienst" (Community service), I spoke more with an old German veteran from the WW I. He was a "Stangenreiter" (horseman) by the Field Artillery. One of my grandpa’s was a tank commander (Panzer IV) at the WW II. The other grandfather did not have to go to war, because he worked in a aircraft factory of Dornier. An old friend of me worked in the WW II in the German Air Force at the radar (Funkmeßgerät "Würzburg").

My great grandfather is a veteran from World War II and he is a part of the Philippine Scouts at that time. He participated at the defence of Bataan and Corregidor, later joined the guerilla forces and lastly participated in the liberation of the Philippine Islands, especially Mindanao.
