The World Changed Seventy Years Ago Today

Seventy years ago today (September 1, 1939), the first shots of World War Two were fired at 4:45 a.m. by the outdated German Battleship Schleswig-Holstein at Polish military installations in the port city of Gdansk.  

Anchored in Gdansk on what was supposed to be a "show the flag" friendly visit, the Schleswig-Holstein suddenly opened fire on Polish military installations in its host's port--a dastardly act of treachery.  Moments later German armies swarmed across the Polish border and German aircraft began attacking Polish airfields and barracks.

The world changed forever.

If there was ever any proof of total depravity, WWII serves as an excellent example.

Thank you to all our veterans, past and present, who fought and fight to preserve freedom.

Excellent reminder...And it just keeps on keeping on, and will. People who constantly rumble for peace just don't get it.
