    The list of veterans is getting shorter each year.
    When i were young i could talk to veterans, now they are all past on. Last time i talked to a veteran was maybe fourteen years ago when i visited a Norwegian WSS volunteer and listened to what he wanted to share of ww2 experiences.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Only 3 SS-Ritterkreuzträger are still alive:

    Eberhard Heder, SS-Sturmbannführer, born 1918
    Rudolf v. Ribbentrop, SS-Hauptsturmführer, born 1921
    Kurt Sametreiter, SS-Oberscharführer, born 1922

    Heder is the last living Sturmbannführer. Most sources view him as Hauptsturmführer, that is wrong, his Soldbuch claims his last rank SS-Sturmbannführer.

    The time is coming. The phrase "Wenn alle bruder schweigen" will not just be a title to a book, But a fact we need to realize. If you know a vet, talk with them NOW. Record there memorize that are also fading away while they still can recall the past!

    RIP Friedrich Buck
