Little known fact...
The actual instruments of surrender were signed on May 7. SACEUR wanted the news held back to placate Stalin. The reporter Ed Kennedy, who leaked it was fired for his troublee.
Eternal honour and thanks to all who fought and suffered for the freedoms this date made possible.
Lest we forget.
