I Love The WWII Era...

...music. It always reminds me of my parents - the greatest generation.

I had wondered where the phrase came from and found out only recently:
"" The term "The Greatest Generation" originated from Tom Brokaw's 1998 book of the same name. In the book, Brokaw wrote, "it is, I believe, the greatest generation any society has ever produced." He argued that these men and women fought not for fame and recognition, but because it was the "right thing to do.""

I was surprised it only came about in 1998, I had thought it was around longer than that. Whatever your feelings about Brokaw as a MSM media NBC journalist, I certainly agree with his summation.
