I am an attorney and certified Circuit Court Mediator. My father served in the US Navy in World War II on the USS Saranac (AO-74) in the Pacific War. I have been studying World War II history for 40 years and writing about it for 20 years. History is consensus of fact and probability. It is important to present it objectively and accurately. I believe Wikipedia should remain ideology-free. It is worth noting that Wikipedia:Article size calls for articles to be no more than 10,000 words. Also grammar footnotes: German language nouns, even common nouns, are always capitalized; use italics for phrases in other languages and for isolated foreign words that are not currently used in English, per WP:MOS. Lastly, due to a increased work load, I will be less active on Wikipedia but will reply to messages, et cetera when I can. Thank you.
For your contributions to bring the vital article Nazi Germany to Good Article status, despite the complexity of the topic and the controversies surrounding it. This article is viewed by an average of 7500 readers a day, and hundreds of thousands per month--I wish you could get credit for a dozen GAs for revising an article like this one! Thanks for all you do. -- Khazar2 (talk) 13:35, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
