When a B-29 comes to northeast Kansas later this month, three Lawrence men will have a chance to relive their moments spent in the plane during World War II.

God bless these men and all service men and women past and present. Thank you for your service.
If it hadn't been for their sacrifices, this country and our world would certainly not be anything like it is today.
I just looked on the web, and found the claim that 405,399 U.S. military personnel were killed in World War II. That does not count the injured, and some were maimed for life.
I do have to wonder, could that many of our present generation ever make the same effort as they did in order to make our country, and eventually the world, as free as it is today?
And, we should never forget that there are a lot of servicemen and women in Afganistan and Iraq that are presently in danger while serving our country also, regardless of how anyone feels about the politics of the present conflicts.
