Their sacrifices kept us free. I will never forget the gift they gave this country and the world!

Avatar changed accordingly. Those brave men headed into hell that day to fight for the world's freedom. Around 10,000 of them never made it inland.

I had a sombering conversation with an older man in the city of Caen. He showed me where his family's farm was before the Nazis took it over and killed his father and his uncle. He made me promise to thank any of those men who freed France should I ever meet them. I've never forgotten that.

Default To bad..

It is really too bad we don't have the same respect for America that the men and women had 66 years ago. A time of John Wayne, apple pie and 'ol glory. Our country is going down the tubes with political correctness.

The Great Men who gave so much for the freedom of so many. If only our country were as good now as it was then. A time when we were truly a superpower.
