This episode was on History Channel today and it reminded of two movies that I watched this year. The wonderful folks of the Greatest Generation never cease to amaze me. There's hard work and then, - there is real hard work and dedication. Great show. It reminded me also of a friend of my brother outside of Hanford Nuclear Facility in Central Washington in the early 1970's. Her father was a nuclear physicist. The only thing more rare than a bright and intelligent black girl in Central Washington at that time was a Nuclear Physicist that got his Ph.D. in the 60's. :-)
I loved the pride of the elderly guys in this episode for what they had done. They did it with less, did more, and survived into a healthy and long life. I've worked hard in my life a few times but I'm not sure that any of us baby boomers will ever understand how dedicated and hard working the Greatest Generation is and was. We moan and groan about the current economy and watch people drinking tea at a party and abuse our president. Let's take a look at those that went through the Great Depression, World War II, and then... built America with their bare hands with deep respect for their pride and strength.
