MEMORIAL Continued jromAl my uniform," Rodabough said. "I can still fit in it." He said he would go fight for the nation again if he could. "If they needed me, blind, bad back, ears and hips, if they needed me, I'd go," Rodabough said. "If I could do anything, I'd be there." Rodabough and Max Dalley, veterans of World War II and the Korean War, respectively, both commented on how war has changed since their time fighting. "In Iraq, they took out what they wanted, like surgery," Dalley said. "War isn't nice and could become a spectator sport watching the fighting from a recliner and drinking drinking a Coke. People get killed, on both sides. For me, war was hell." Dalley said it's more precise how the military can target one building to destroy, and less innocent innocent lives are taken. "In Germany ... we just fought for gains of a few yards," he said. This is the greatest nation on earth, Rodabough said. "It's marvelous what we can do today," he said.
