Quote du jour

"Please be generous to me, but never call me a hero. During the Pacific War, I did my job and that's it. I know I performed a dangerous task - dropping out of the sky with a bomb- and that I lived in an exceptional time, when the world was torn apart by war. But in the end, I'm just a lucky fool, blessed with a long life and lasting love. Fortune favors me, but I have yet to comprehend why."
- Norman Jack Kleiss, Dive bomber pilot at the battle of Midway.
