    Their story is in a book called "A Perfect Hell" it's a really good read about their campaigns in Italy and so on.

    Yeah it's quite inspirational, it's basically the unit First Special Service Force that was the framework for the current US and Canadian special forces of today. I found it in the Ottawa war museum and didn't read it until about 2 years later, some of the stuff you're amazed at how it's true. Such a different time than the military I currently serve it, not sure if that's good of bad.

    That is most defiantely true. We serve in a different era now. Granted we're fighting our nations longest war with an all volunteer force, which is pretty amazing, but I don't think anything generation will ever beat the generation that fought in WWII... I admire every single one of those men that fought in that era. Don't take me wrong though I wouldn't wanna fight with anyone else but the men next to right now, but they were true hero's in my book.
