    That raised the Baby Boomers, that turned into flower children that are now running the country, and trying to take away all the good things the greatest generation died for

    Rather ironic

    Some of those guys that were in WW2 and particularly those that fought in Normandy on D Day were in units that took over 95% or greater casualties. And they still fought on. "The Greatest Generation" doesn't even begin to cover it. We owe them our lives many times over.

    Would the Snowflake Generation Storm the beaches like the Greatest Generation did. I don't think so. Facing Fire, is harder than starting one!

    You'd just need to tell them that the enemy were police.
