World War II Veteran

Some teen at the supermarket stopped me and my father and kept asking if we’re both World War 2 Veterans!

I know I look old for my age but that was too much!

But in all honesty I was wearing a mask

Seriously I’m 59 but look about 67 or 70

It’s the meds.

I’ve been on them since I was 20

Here’s a fun one.

Went to go visit my neighbor in the hospital after he was in a car accident.

During conversation he asked how old I was,

I said 38,

He said, “Wow! I would have guessed at least 50!”.

So,

People are idiots.

I wouldn’t take those comments to heart.

When I was a teenager,

I thought 30 was like give-up-on-life ancient.

Teenagers don’t know ■■■■ about ■■■■.

Fact.

Well I remember that in the 1960s and 70s being in your 40s for a man was very old.

Lots of people, especially men died in their 50s

Today many people are living well into their 90s!

I look young for my age but I feel old inside.

My grandpa was a ww2 veteran. His father had been a ww1 mia. Dad worked in the military too.

In contrast, I am an absolute pacifist.

I enjoy your posts.

Did you ever see the film “Hacksaw Ridge”?

It’s a pacifist who wins heroism against the many doubters.

Your father and grandfather I’m sure contained pacifist nuances and more, thus it arising in you!!

Hopefully you know all that !!

Thanks for the compliment.

Yea dad is all for peace too, but abides by the old saying “if one wants to keep the peace, one should be ready for war”.

I don’t remember ever watching that movie. I’ll look it up though :+1:t3:

The World War II veterans are dying off. They’re considered the greatest generation because they went through the Depression and fought World War II.
