I Find This Collection Of Photographs To Be MOST Eerie..!

Can You Imagine The Conversations That Took Place Among These Warriors When They Were Gathered Here, Knowing They Were Going To Smelter..!

WE Should Have Been Listening, To EVERY TALE THEY TOLD...

These Machines Of War And The Brave Men & Women Associated With THEM. ARE Responsible For The America That WE Know Today.

If EVER There Was Sacred GROUND It Was HERE..!

They Should Have Been Fenced In And Left @ Peace For ALL To Marvel..!

To Forever TELL Their Tales To Each Other, And Those That Understand..!

As A Kid Looking At These Photos It Was Different - To ME These Fighters And Bombers Were Just The Coolest Things Ever Made…

Then Around 20 Years Old I Began To Enjoy These Photos For What They REALLY Were.

Pictures Of The Most BEAUTIFUL Representations On Earth, Of Machines Designed To Do An Unpleasant Job..!

For PROBABLY 45 Years As I'm Now 66 - (59 When I Posted This To YouTube).

Call Me CRAZY But When I Look At These Photos TODAY...

I Can Hear These Magnificent Utensils Of WAR Talking To Themselves About Their Individual Objectives, Pursuits, And Provenance.

I'm Heartbroken, And Pensive As I Languish The Thought Of THEM Watching Each One Of Their Brothers And Sisters Go To Smelter Never To Return.

Can You IMAGINE The Conversations Between The Remaining Last Dozen Or So..?

The Thought Of The Last Two Or Three Brings A Tear To My Eye…

Then Their Was ONE - And WE As A People Don't Even Have A Photograph Or Know His Or Her Name..?

To Me They Were LIVING Things With HEARTS And Souls, Not Station Wagons...

We Do Not Deserve The Country Handed To Us By The Generation Represented In This Video…

Just Look At Today's State Of Affairs As Witness To What We Have Done With That Generation's Sacrifices.

Wake Up..! Look Back - Hind Site IS 20/20.

Lest We, As A Country, End Up Like These Grand Old "Kings And Queens Of The Sky".

As Posted In These Comments By "MY FRIEND WELDER"...

"The tumult and the shouting have died away. The B-17's and B-24's will never again assemble into strike formation in the bitter cold of embattled skies. Never again will the musical thunder of their passage cause the very earth to tremble, the source of sound lost in infinity and seeming to emanate from all things, visible and invisible.The great deep-throated engines are forever silent, replaced by the flat, toneless roar of the jets and the rockets.

But, on bleak and lonely winter nights in the English Midlands, ghost squadrons take off silently in the swirling mist of the North Sea from ancient weed-choked runways, and wing away toward the east, never to return. On other nights the deserted woodlands ring with unheard laughter and gay voices of young men and young women who once passed that way.

Recollections of all these fade a little with each passing year until at last there will finally remain only the indelible records of the all-seeing Master of the Universe to recall the deeds of valor excelled by no other nation, arm, or service. These sacred scrolls will forever remain the heritage of the free and untrampled people of this earth."

Colonel Budd Peasley, C.O. 384th Bomb Group (H), 8th Air Force
