Default A Miltary Tale of Beauty and Tragedy that deserves to be heard by all

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-wW58-3qSQ

Its a Fifteen Min Video outlining the story of a 19 year old lad called John O'Sullivan who was a friend of my Nans who was in the Royal Air Force during WW2 and took part in the 100 Bomber Raid.

When he didnt come back, she decided to find out what happened to him, and over fifty years this led her to visit Europe, the site of Johns Death and to hear eye witness accounts of the night in question, and to take part in a ceremony to honour all the war dead.

its a beautiful story...and yes...she does tear up at the end

I defy anyone not to be moved by the sincerity of this tale. Dont complain about the length of the video, just watch and show your respect.
