Remembering the “G.I. Generation”: When ordinary people did extraordinary things.

It’s a day of sales, a day off from work, a day with no mail being delivered.

It’s Veteran’s Day, the day when America honors the service of all U.S. military veterans – the men and women who have enabled us to be here today.

Just imagine yourself living the story of an ordinary American named Scott Downing, a World War II veteran, who, in his words: “didn’t do anything special.  I just did my duty.”
