I just watched this on youtube, very good. I was born in the 70's and I had no idea about this.  Thanks for the education.

Both are well worth it, Normandy was a special experience. It was awesome to walk through there and talk with my son about the people and history.

He even got to do a geographic survey with a historian trying to pin point the location where Sgt York rose to fame.

I'm never one to tell folks they can't or shouldn't drop their opinions, my point was that trying to argue someone into a different opinion rarely works.  Present a side or evidence and then let reason take over (if there is any.)

I find it interesting that it's a possibility that Sandusky may have been too old (considering Paterno's age and that Sandusky was the heir apparent) but there is no possibility of culpability.  I am not here to condemn Paterno, mostly because he is dead, but in my mind he is also not absolved based on the fact that he was an old man who kinda did something but couldn't do more because he needed more information.

I really appreciate the nod to Airpower! I am an Airman (acft mx) with 23 years in and counting.  I pulled a lot of time on 135's and about 5 years on F-16s.  Tanker TOADS are quiet professionals who do a job that largely goes unappreciated. A tip of the cap to the maintainers and aviators in our sister services as well.

This is a false logic loop.  Paterno only had two options, do nothing or be a vigilante?  I am not passing judgment one way or the other, but if he was enough of a threat that they retired him, letting him back in is criminal negligence.  I hope all of the comments in this thread get nuked.  Good article with good information, but neither side is going to change their stance so beyond stating a position is fruitless.

No DV but you are correct (I disagree with you )  Coach Fickle may not be head coach material (most are not) but he is at the very least what he is.  DC at one of the most prestigious football schools in the country.

one tiny glimpse into the dedication these Soldiers have can be had by looking at the things they sacrifice to have the honor of doing this job. They give up many freedoms above and beyond those already surendered by the rest of the their military brotheers and sisters.  Tradidition and ceremony are important, but the depth and value of their service is without measure

i posted this before i saw the link below that elaborates on some of the sacrifices, its no accident taht it is a life long commitment
