    Tomorrow (March 7th) marks the 70th anniversary of the seizure of the bridge at Remagen, Germany. A lucky coup for Gen. Hodges 1st Army. With allied forces using the bridge to cross the Rhine, the end game began for Germany.

    I found that my parents had a long time friend who got a field commission for his action for the bridge. He kicked the behinds of a bunch of guys who wouldn't advance and then got them to take it. I wish I had known this before he passed away.
