Time to join NATO!

We are known to fight in every war anyway.

My grandfather during WW II led a group on the Irish Curraugh to bring in pilots who overflew England. The British pilots were sent back to fly again. The German ones were held and not allowed to leave. But could freely roam in town. There were quite a few Irish/German babies out of this.

Oh…and a great uncle of mine on the other side in Dublin did sourced thousands of American uniforms made in Ireland. The Irish being neutral do not admit this or possibly even have a written history of it. He was very industrious. So the Americans asked him who in England could make the uniforms. England did not the resources. The great uncle sourced them in Ireland for the US army.
