Just remember there are many from the Greatest Generation who are the last of their units... (We know this gentleman is Russian, but remember they also fought the Nazis)

*Gasp* has it already been a year?! It was 3 days ago. Funny enough, I may have subconsciously have started this page as a coping mechanism to move past a rather upsetting breakup… 3800 followers later… what surprises me though, is this: there's such a massive vintage/1940's/WWII community here on Instagram. I'm genuinely surprised nobody had previously thought to make page for 40's couples, given they're the height of cuteness. This photo is one of many treats sent in by @fobiasloneczna . Here's to 2 years of @couplesofthe1940s . #wwii #ww2 #worldwarii #worldwar2 #oldphoto #vintagephoto #antiquephoto #secondworldwar #greatestgeneration #thegreatestgeneration #relationshipgoals #couplegoals #girlfriend #boyfriend #relationshipgoals #relationship #relationships #couple #couples #couplegoals #goals #1940s #vintagecouple #vintage #40s #younglove #army #usarmy #militarycouple

Our team of 30 hits the water in the English Channel in less than 2 weeks, with Omaha Beach as our goal, commemoration as our intention, and support for a worthy cause as our motivation.

I’m reading each day about the staggering sacrifices made in Operation Overlord in WW2 & feeling a sense of deep respect for those who sacrificed everything. I’m training hard these final days, as is each team member. It will be an honor to pay respects in Normandy.

“Well you've got to think of something /
Cause your job pays you nothing /
But you've got the things God gave you /
So the music may yet be your savior”

What an opportunity I had this past weekend! Met an incredible member of the Greatest Generation... Colonel Richard Bushong USAF retired. He was a B-17 bomber pilot in the European theatre during WWII and flew F4’s in Vietnam. Incredible this man made it home to tell his story. Also bought the book he wrote (he even signed it for me), been a good read so far.

With Memorial Day approaching take time to remember those who sacrificed everything for us to live free. #thankful #b17flyingfortress #greatestgeneration #amazingman #usaf #pilot #america🇺🇸 @pimaair

Sorry to hear that Clint Walker has passed ... a few days shy of his 91st Bday. He was great in the Western Movies he did and the “Dirty Dozen” one of my favorites. He was a big guy that towered over probably everyone he met ... lol. RIP Clint ...thanks for all the great movies, shows, comedy’s... https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clint_Walker

Day 22: Early War
You all already know early war PTO is our bread and butter. Portraying elements of the 32nd Infantry Division on New Guinea in 1942 is one of our specialities!

Officers of the B-17F “Black Swan” pose with their Crew Chief and their Squadron Commander next to a sign featuring the insignia of the 324th Bomb Squadron, of which both “Black Swan” and the “Memphis Belle” were assigned. #wpafb #nmusaf #aircorps #b17 #91stbg #324thbs #wwii #greatestgeneration #usaaf #aircorps #reenactors @aeroleatherclothing

With tense stomachs, officers and men of the 324th Bomb Squadron convene outside the briefing hut as they prepare to grab their equipment and head to the flight line. Half of the U.S. Army Air Force's casualties in World War II were suffered by 8th Air Force, with more than 26,000 men lost in action. #wpafb #nmusaf #aircorps #b17 #91stbg #8thairforce #wwii #greatestgeneration #usaaf #aircorps #reenactors @aeroleatherclothing

Officers of the B-17 “Black Swan” discuss the upcoming mission with their flight engineer after their pre-flight briefing. #wpafb #nmusaf #aircorps #b17 #91stbg #wwii #greatestgeneration #usaaf #aircorps #reenactors @aeroleatherclothing

For the past several months I’ve had the privilege of being invited to a monthly “Battle of the Bulge Veterans Lunch”. And I sincerely count it as a privilege because I am the only one there who did not live through - or marry someone who lived through - the battle.

Our time together is always filled with memorable moments. Some are inspiring, like when Michette (seated on the right) told us of her family’s brave defiance in the midst of Nazi occupation. Some are heartbreaking, like when Carl (on the left) read us the beautiful eulogy he wrote for his recently deceased wife’s funeral.

The moment captured in the video above is Sam reading a poem given to him by a grateful American. The poem seemed to be a necessary reminder to the group sitting there that day that their service, and the things they fought for so long ago, still make a difference today.

The Movie Memphis Belle comes to a stop on the tarmac as Yankee Lady touches down behind her.

Once back to base, the crews would be debriefed and ground crews would get busy repairing battle damage and prepping for the next mission. Ground crews waiting to see what the pilot did to their planes.

So thankful for the sweetest days with #ny #family and the #bestdad ever. ❤️#greatestgeneration #WWII ✈️👨‍✈️
