Glad he survived or I wouldn't be here.
It's amazing how many of us actually are here by virtue of good luck of our fathers surviving a war. It was a bad war, but didn't last long. We've been in Iraq and Afghanistan longer than WW2 lasted.
What's wrong with that picture?
I'm glad he survived we would be otherwise be without a valuable resource on the Zed.
