I was listening to AVNC VI (The first one that I've put on my iPod) and "Christmas in the Trenches" came on. So I went and poked around online and found the neat article above about a soccer game rematch that commemorated the original game in 1914.
I have to say, this is one of the reasons I really like Britain. They DO care about history.
This is my grandfather on my Mom's side, Pop Pop Albert. He was in the Army during WW2 and spent most of it at Fort Irwin, CA. During that time he heard Gen. Patton speak and on weekend passes would ride the Southern Pacific into town.
