Well here in Holland some older people still don't like the Germans much. My own grandparents were two of those people. While we have German blood running through my family but they chose to ignore that. If I would meet a German vet, I would treat him with the same respect that I would treat any other vet. I have the upmost respect for all soldiers who fought in world war 2 ( not counting the extremely cruel groups of some countries ), and who were just doing their jobs. But like I said: here in Holland it can be a sticky subject.
