Tak! Na zdrowie!from America's Polish Heritage citizens--10,000,000 strongThe first Polish settlers arrived at Walter Raleigh's failed Roanoke Colony in 1585. Two Polish volunteers, Casimir Pulaski and Tadeusz Kościuszko, led armies in the Revolutionary War.And don't forget the Relief of Vienna, 1683, where the Poles under King John crushed the invading Ottomans and saved Europe.
That link is a great resource. Thanks for posting it.
These "Kids" surpassed the challenge. BZ
Heroes every one: shat on by their "allies" from East and West.
This, %100. And, that's even after the Poles were instrumental in fighting the rearguard action that allowed the "brave" brits to flee Dunkirk. Go figure.
Profiles in courage. Against insurmountable odds they fought ternary, and were victorious.
Remember these pictures the next time you think you're looking at a "frail and helpless" old person... Strength, courage and will is what allowed them to grow old.
My their honor shine forever.Niech żyje Polska!

My father was first in his class at the Polish Naval Academy in 1936 and Torpedo Officer on submarine O.R.P. Zbik which laid mines off Hela and sank the German minesweeper M-85 on October 1, 1939. I returned his golden saber to the Naval Museum in Gdynia in 2019. His three brother were members of the resistance fighting in the Warsaw 1944 uprising. One lost a leg another ended up in a concentration camp. All three highly decorated.
