V-E Day

8 MAY 1945

VICTORY IN EUROPE









The war is over.

I cannot begin to fathom the overwhelming joy and immense relief that came for millions hearing those words. The greatest conflict the world has ever known came to an end 73 years ago today. We today will never taste a sweeter drink nor smoke a better cigarette than this staff sergeant, right now, at the business end of the Allied advance, upon hearing those four words.

CHEERS!

Happy V-E Day!

- Fred

Re: V-E Day

Great figure Fred. Definitely captures the feel of the big day. Love the liberated pistol and holster. Awesome array of crates too.

Re: V-E Day

Kev, Josh, THANKS!

Much appreciated!

Josh, great to see you log back onto the boards! Welcome back to the fight!


Two more photos:


1. My table at the club meeting where I threw this figure together (over the course of a few hours):




2. This great reference photo I found on Pinterest a few days ago:




Members of the 7th Infantry, 3rd ID, enjoying the best drink of their lives at Berchtesgaden near the end of it all!

Thanks again for the compliments, guys!

Fred

Very nicely done and like the way your piled-up on the supplies and 'liberated' wine bottles...definitely an event worth celebrating. Thanks for sharing, Steve
