Thank you, Daniele, polona, and Adelaide. Standing on Omaha Beach was a more powerful experience than I had expected.

That anniversary...

Seen that from TV. Another battle was that one around Stalingrad.

And Stalin occupied Berlin. (Or Zukov.)

Our last war 1944 was against the Germans. So we had three different wars during 1939-1944: The winter war 1939, then a "usual" war against Generallismus Stalin and after that a battle against those Germans still in Finland.

Seen some memorial up there in Finnish Lappland, and one also in Norway.

We are still alive. I think. Next war is perhaps New Civil War inside EU, including Greek Pirates etc. Sorry Greeks.-(
