I was looking for a thread on this but didn't see one, so I'll say it myself even if it is a couple of days late. Several days ago we marked the 70th anniversary of VE Day, the downfall of perhaps the worst tyranny that has ever existed on Earth. The Allied victory in Europe was the culmination of years of bloodshed and effort by millions of Allied servicemen and women, a few of whom we are fortunate to have in our midst on this site. As we remember the dead, so we should also give thanks to the living. Because of what they did, several generations of Europeans and Americans have been able to grow up and live in relative peace and prosperity. So, let's say a word of appreciation and lift our hats to Tom, Ron, Joe, Brian, and all the others. We know it wasn't fun, gentlemen, but even on your worst days you can rest assured that it was worth it.
