Daniel Bellinger’s legacy includes Revolutionary War battles and World War II heroism. Now he’s bringing that spirit to the Giants

Sealed inside a plastic bag, a photograph of George Bellinger floated away from a rented motor boat and disappeared into the Pacific Ocean. Just like he did. Sixty-three years before his eldest son and a grandson he never met closed a chapter in family history by visiting Jaluit Atoll on a propeller plane in 2005, Navy Lt.

States With The Most WWII Veterans Still Living

The Greatest Generation... we've all heard that phrase referring to the generation of our grandparents, or maybe our great-grandparents.

There is a line in the HBO mini-series Band of Brothers while interviewing the actual veterans of Easy Company, where one veteran talked about how two men from his small town committed suicide because they were declared 4F and COULDN'T sign up and go fight for their country.
