Yes, bdrechs, I put Joe21 on ignore……

I had nothing against Joe. I made no derogatory comments about his posts nor ever TDed him. But his posts were mainly about the Great Depression and WWII. My father was born in 1916 and my mother in 1923. Through them and my 2 sets of grandparents I was well aware of the hardships of the depression. I heard about how they would mush butter into Karo syrup with a fork and dip bread into it. It was the only dessert they could afford. I heard how they scrimped and saved just to get by. I really didn’t need to hear anymore about the depression, which was very hard on both sides of my family, from old Joe.

As for WWII, my father was a forward observer for the 58th Armored Field Artillery Battalion. This highly decorated unit took part in the invasion of North Africa, the invasion of Sicily, 2 hedgehop invasions behind German lines in Sicily under George Patton and was in the first wave ashore on Omaha Beach on 6 June, 1944. I still have my father’s watch which stopped at 06:38 that morning when the Navy stopped short and dumped the men off their LST in water that was over their head. Hundreds of soldiers drowned that morning because the Navy refused to take them all the way up to the beach. Imagine being shoved off an LST into water over your head with 75 pounds of gear on. The 58th also fought across France and also fought in the Battle of the Bulge. In Europe they fought under General Omar Bradley. I guess you could say they were a very battle hardened group.

Starting in the ‘60s, the 58th held an annual reunion in Greenville, SC, I attended these reunions every year and met scores of these brave heroes. I heard war stories so horrible it would make the hair on your head stand up. I also heard stories so funny you thought you would die laughing. I heard about Elmer the German soldiers head that went everywhere with them and was their unit mascot. I heard about Private Jesse Blitch who claimed his blanket was bomb proof. Instead of taking cover when the Germans shelled or strafed the unit, Jesse would sit out in the open with nothing but a blanket over his head. He survived the war without a scratch.

I would listen to my father talk about his best friend, Bill Long, who is buried on the bluffs above Omaha Beach. He told how a piece of shrapnel tore Bill’s throat out and how he listened to Bill’s throat gurgle with blood for over an hour before he died.

So you see bdrechs, I have heard plenty about the Depression and WWII in my life. I read several of Joe’s threads and they were okay but seemed awful tame compared to many stories I had been told. I really had no interest in reading Joe’s daily anecdotes and to keep from having to scroll past him everyday I simply put him on ignore as a matter of convenience.

As stated before, I had nothing against Joe and I’m glad you guys enjoyed his stories. But I really was not that interested in reading his daily posts

Maybe you should know the background story before you start casting aspersions.

Stubborn was referring to me. He’s a POS that hangs out on the P&R and Covid board. Still living in fear with his mask on while clinging to every word Biden can’t spit out. We got into it a few times to the point I stopped going to those boards as I felt it was a waste of time. For some reason 6 months or so later the tranny decided to F with me outside of his comfort zone.

Btw, I wasn’t trying to be critical of your post and was merely making a suggestion. Sucks that a couple ######### hijacked it.

Joe 21 was a fine man and I loved his posts like so many others. I read and enjoyed his posts even though they were about the Depression. Guess what, everyone went through the Depression then, not just your family. You should have kept your thoughts to yourself. You are in the extreme minority on this subject.

Wow. Really guys?!? Read what you want, block what you want. Let others have the same options. It’s a free country - thanks to guys like Joe and 72’s father.
BTW - my parents were born in 1925 and sopping syrup and butter with mom’s biscuits was routine at our house still when I was a kid. Wish I had some right now.

My family were farmers. We had electricity & a telephone but no running water, which meant no bathroom. Sugar sandwiches was my desert. I vowed not to live that life and joined the Navy and stayed 24 years. I'm sure 72 is proud and he should be, but to suggest the Navy purposely sent Soldiers to drown is way off. Don't listen to war stories 72, study how it really happened.

Read about all the drowned American soldiers off of Omaha Beach. Kind of hard to drown when the water is not over your head. Google it.

1972, your story is quite compelling but you should have stopped after your
first sentence. You are doing what you accused Joe21 of doing. Joe21 was an
intelligent man and God rest his soul. You had a right to ignore but you
shouldn't have. Joe reminds us all of our fathers telling stories of
the past.

We were privileged to have Joe and I for one miss him. Joe21 was full of
knowledge and i enjoyed everything he posted. Go back and read his posts
and you will get a different perspective of what he was saying. Go Tigers
and Joe21.

you hate everyone and everything on this bored. You bully, deflect and bring nothing of any substance to any thread I’ve ever read.

Having had Joe on ignore says way more about you than it does him. I’m glad some of the better posters on the bored already put you in your place on this one, considering the amount of toxicity you bestow with every post.

You’re an angry and sad old man who wants nothing more than for others to feel as miserable as you. Too bad though, you lose again.
