I'm trying to think of a polite way to say that I'm skeptical of that one. Im an amateur but fairly serious WWII buff and I've never heard or read that phrase. And all the men in my family and neighborhood were WWII or Korean vets when I was growing up in the 1950s in America. Dave I have to agree with you on that one. Dave. I've spoken with thousands of US veterans and read accounts of many, many more and I have never heard that term used.
