    Like the setups George. And I think I just flew over Hurtgen on my way into Frankfurt.

    72 hours ago I got a great view of Normandy from 30,000 feet. I was a little closer to Hurtgen, I believe.
    Thanks Larry, glad you like my set up...………...did some reading on Hurtgen; roughly 33K US casualties, then the Bulge after that, roughly 75K casualties, that's about 110K casualties in about 4 months of fighting, roughly 1,000 casualties a day.

    What a slaughter...…………….
