D Day
 
Today is D Day. Let us remember and be grateful for the courage and sacrifice shown on that day and in the ensuing years.

All gave some, some gave all.

The American Cemetery overlooking Omaha Beach:

Moment of silence observed in honor of those who sacrificed.

Rest In Peace

And to all other fallen service men and women as well.

That war, and those men, helped save the world from an evil bastard that should have been killed at birth. They are beyond heros, they are immortal in the minds of not only Americans, but everyone else around the world.

I find it sad that this has four replies, I am not even home from work yet and pulled this up on the phone.

Brave Men fought and died this day for may they didn't even know. Now, it is getting where people are forgetting these men and the heroic actions they performed.

Sometimes I cry.

"...The eyes of the world are upon you" >> General Dwight D. Eisenhower's speech to the Allied troops on D-Day

The utmost respect goes out to the the brave soldiers who faced and endured the horrors they met hitting the beaches that day. I salute you.

R.I.P. Brothers in Arms, We still hold your values.

Last few paragraphs of Ronald Reagans 40th anniv. D-Day address on June 6 1984, quoted here:

We will pray forever that someday that changing will come. But for now, particularly today, it is good and fitting to renew our commitment to each other, to our freedom, and to the alliance that protects it.

We're bound today by what bound us 40 years ago, the same loyalties, traditions, and beliefs. We're bound by reality. The strength of America's allies is vital to the United States, and the American security guarantee is essential to the continued freedom of Europe's democracies. We were with you then; we're with you now. Your hopes are our hopes, and your destiny is our destiny.

Here, in this place where the West held together, let us make a vow to our dead. Let us show them by our actions that we understand what they died for. Let our actions say to them the words for which Matthew Ridgway listened: "I will not fail thee nor forsake thee."
