From 1980 to 1984 I was in the U.S. Marine Corps. The Marine Corps does a fine job on teaching it's recruits about it's history. I got hooked on history because of this. While stationed in Okinawa and mainland Japan, i got to see a lot of sites and to learn about things that are not in high school history books. I don't just look at WW2 though. I also look at WW1, and the history of Poland. My ancestry is Polish, and I got to go there in 2007 because of work. I got to see Auschwitz, and for me this was a very humbling experience. I try to learn all sorts of things as far as history is concerned. But both world wars, do still peak my interest. I am always looking at things on line, and I love the History Channel.
