In commemoration of VE Day, The History Underground on YouTube

With Friday being the 75th anniversary of the end of the war in Europe I'd like to share this YouTube channel I've been watching. This guy has done a whole bunch of really well-made videos of historical places, but he recently did a bunch on D-Day, The Bulge, and other WW2 battle sites. I think most here would really enjoy it:

Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

And to no surprise, absolutely no mention of VE Day on CNN. Just more COVID-19 panic articles plus a new slurry of articles about the GA racial shooting. In other words, only what CNN wants us to hear.
