Sixty Years On
On May 8, 1945 the War in Europe ended and there was a brief period of peace in that area as the effort turned to Asia and continuing action against Japan. There really was light at the end of the tunnel, but it didn't last long. The united effort to end the threat to most of the world soon collapsed as nations left cooperation behind and were soon at each other's throats.
Update: Why isn't there some kind or type of official recognition of the 60th
anniversity of V-E Day in the US? Would a ceremony at the World War II Memorial been too much to expect? We are running out of World War II veterans, and it would have been nice to recognise their service.
