Today is a great day in our history .  For on this date 65 yrs ago  the greatous generation  began coming home.   I doubt if we will ever see a generation demostrate patriotism as that one did.

Re: o

That is an interesting note Hobby.

I suppose there was a date when the net flow was back but is it not true that there is still a significant US presence in Europe? So they all did not come home even after 65 years.

Not sure when the return started for Canadian forces but have an uncle, still alive, who did his training and took a train ride to Halifax ready to embark for Europe but at that point they decided not to send more forces over so he took a train ride back to Ontario and was discharged shortly after that.

Not sure of dates, should ask him next time I am talking to him and am not sure when my other uncles and aunt returned.
