WWII Veteran on a M38A1

Post by Dokimos » Thu May 09, 2019 7:15 am

Below are a couple of pictures I am particularly proud of.

During the last Parade celebrating the resistance of Greece against Nazis I had the honor to have as a Passenger Mr. Triantafyllos Karavarsamis, age 104, served as a Corporal in Greek Army against Fascist Italy in the mountains of Albania in 1940-1941. Mr. Karavarsamis has never missed a parade and I cannot be grateful enough that he chose my M38A1 to honor the resistance day.

Hello,

Thanks for posting that picture with the great Greek WW2 Hero riding along !!
What a thrill to have him with you, and a great parade , to remember the sacrifices made!
People have no idea what the Greeks endured during WW2 !!

They helped to win the War and defeat the Nazi menace throughout the ETO.
God Bless him and the Greek People !!
Keep up your great efforts to preserve history in Greece and your WW2 Generation there !!

Best Regards,
Ray
