Operation Valkyrie anniversary  
Hello, all. Today is the anniversary of the Valkyrie assassination plot, headed by Claus von Stauffenberg.

I know we all enjoy the movie (and I plan to watch it tonight to think of those men), but don't forget the real men who sacrificed their lives in an attempt to make their voices heard and to stop one of the great atrocities in history. For them, it was no movie plot.
