By the way, it's about time to call all the "greatest generation" nonsense what it is: nonsense (not surprisingly from liberal clown Tom Brokaw.). For all the triumphs, the so-called "greatest generation" presided over the gutting of the Constitution. They let government tell a farmer he can't grow wheat on his own land for his own consumption. They let ownership of gold be OUTLAWED. They got conned into non-defensive WW1, leading directly to WW2 and the cold war. They presided over the creation of ruinous entitlement ponzi schemes, bankrupting their offspring.
The greatest American generation since the Founders will be anyone who can clean up the bankrupt socialist police-state mess that's about to explode.
