    • David, thank you for your visit and your wonderful comment. Let’s see — I think you covered it. Hmm. I got curious and looked it up. =) ♥.

      “Neil Howe and William Strauss define recent generational cohorts in the U.S. this way:
      2000 to present: New Silent Generation or Generation Z.
      1980 to 2000: Millennials or Generation Y.
      1965 to 1979: Thirteeners or Generation X.
      1946 to 1964: Baby Boomers.
      1925 to 1945: Silent Generation.
      1900 to 1924: G.I. Generation.”

      • I guess it’s because those born in ’25 were 18 in ’43 when WWII was nearing an end. (Sept ’45). Most of the soldiers and officers who served came from the GI Generation. But no, not silent.
