Allied forces stormed the beaches of Normandy to bring freedom to the captives and death to the captors.

God Bless each and every one of those who set foot on those bloody beach heads.

Lest we forget. There are 9,387 American GI's still over there. Most died at Normandy.

    Thank you for reminding me. They are the true heroes, truly courageous young men, as are all in the military both past and present. It is good of you to remember and honor them.

    A big thanks for the reminder from me too, Mark. This day tends to slip a little more in my mind than Dec. 7th. Maybe if I wrote a check or two today...

    Uncle Ned was shell shocked on the beach, sent home and back to fight again. Thank God my Dad shipped over a month or so later or I might not be here.

    "....we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

    That is the end of the Gettysburg Address. It popped into my mind as it relates to our European involvement in WWII. We will not forget!

    You guys all know how I feel about "The Greatest Generation". Even the women. It's all been said before.
