FILE - In this Jan/ 1945 file photo, American soldiers check for identification on the bodies of dead U.S. troops shot by the Germans near Malmedy, Belgium during World War II's Battle of the Bulge. The Battle of the Bulge was one of the largest and bloodiest battles of World War II. A tour taking place in December 2014 that’s connected to the National World War II Museum in New Orleans is taking three dozen people to the battlefields and towns in Belgium where the Battle of the Bulge was fought 70 years ago.

Wonderful piece on the Long Island veterans who fought in the Battle of the Bulge ["70 years after Battle of the Bulge," News, Dec. 14].

They were true heroes who at such a young age sacrificed so much and endured such tremendous hardships, with traumatic memories of the event that haunt them to this day.
