My grandpa loathed Frank Sinatra, because he said during World War Two 4-F Sinatra stayed home and bragged about bedding the wives and girlfriends of GIs off fighting for their country. He never forgave Sinatra for that. I was just randomly thinking about that this morning.

My stepfather was a Navy Airman in the war. He kept getting moved into one form or another of "advanced training" which kept him out of active combat.
That doesn't mean he skated through it; There were more than a few gruesome accidents he had to help clean up.

Anyway, after the war, he went to dental school, & became a dentist for 50yrs.
One of his instructors was an avowed pacifist, who believed that the US should have just given Hawaii to Japan & stayed out of the war.

One of my stepdad's classmates was an ex Marine who had been to Iwo Jima, and enjoyed picking on this one professor. (Most of hist classmates were veterans.)

So, one day, the professor was going to teach these future dentists how to melt down & purify gold in order to make fillings & crowns, AND incidentally, asked the students if they could procure their own in order to save the school some money.
The ex Marine showed up that day with a bag full of gold teeth. The professor wanted to know where he had gotten them, and well, I don't want to go into too much detail, but the ex Marine went on to explain how he had retrieved them from fallen Japanese on Iwo Jima.

The pacifist professor was appalled, which amused all the veterans.

Oh, Lord was that a brutal war.
The Japanese set the standard by how they treated prisoners and other non-Japanese, so that was the Imperial Military's payback. Watching THE PACIFIC and reading NEPTUNE'S INFERNO (The U.S.Navy at Guadalcanal) makes me glad my dad was also lucky to be a Navy Aircraft prop spec. in Sitka, AK. I feel for your stepdad, LilCerberus.

My StepDad also likes to tell the story about how he got his deployment papers the day before the war ended.
My father also managed to stay stateside during the Vietnam War as a radar operator for delta battery.
And I had an uncle who was an Air Force typist during the war who had to serve stateside due to a bad ear.

I guess I just felt the obligation to point out that Frank Sinatra wasn't the only ingrate of the 1940s. I mean, we're told often enough about the hippie counter culture of the '60s, and it's politely touched on how accomplished men like Henry Ford & Charles Lindbergh were Nazi sympathizers prior to the war, but we never hear stories of how these men weren't alone in their beliefs, or that even way back then, we had the same voices we have today saying that we can't run around the world fighting other people's wars & making other nations mad at us, or going to war over some tiny little island that wasn't worth defending...

I'd really like to hear more about American dissenters of WWII, just like I wish every election year, people would watch Triumph Of The Will so they would see just where a slick PR package really gets a nation...

Let's not forget that we in the 2010s can have free discussion on things like dissent against our government less because of those who stayed home in the 1940s, than because of those who went over and put their lives on the line to oppose the evil people who created Triumph of the Will.

I'm with my grandpa on this, to carry on with the wives of the men over there protecting you is a low thing to do.

I think I need to learn up on Margaret Sanger...
The radicalist right wing talk shows have been bringing up how Hilary's such a drooling worshiper of Sanger...

So I looked it up, and apparently, in WWII, she had to rename everything she was a proponent of, because it was exactly what the Nazis were doing.

Yup. And also, from the horses mouth.

So, following my misogynistic rant, some rabid atheist on twitter had to point out that Hitler & Sanger weren't fans of each other... Semantics... The irony...
