    Arctic POW Escape


    In 2004 Norwegian hikers in Sweden stumbled upon the remains of a man in a German uniform. After three years of research the soldier has now finally been laid to rest.

    Dr. S.
    Imagine a ball of iron, the size of the sun. And once a year a tiny sparrow brushes its surface with the tip of its wing. And when that ball of iron, the size of the sun, is worn away to nothing, your punishment will barely have begun.

    Thanks for the thread Doc.
    The numbness that affects us all when dealing with millions of death, can only come home when we read about these brave men as individuals. These stories bring home the tragedy that exists in all wars, in all eras.
    Whether conscripted or enlisted, here is a man that at 30-35 should be watching his children grow, lay with a loving wife, have the honor of honest work, and pray that his babies will have the best life he can provide. While we can never know his dreams as a younger man, I believe we can be sure they did not include the years of misery that war and capture brought to him.
    He was the "Universal Soldier", and deserves all the attention and praise he garners. For his family at home, I hope someone will pay to do the right thing and use the DNA.

        Very cool. & always wanted to know more about the arctic railroad project. Why it was a flop, & if it had been started earlier, or given better equipment if it could have been pulled off.

        An all weather road was completed, but not rail line.

            Very well stated. A moving story, I hope he gets home one day.
            Makes you think about just how many never made it home.
