Nuff said !
I'll say it tomorrow!
I'll drink a beer in silence when I get off work.
Salute to all our vets and all who didnt make it home. We are forever in your debt.
God Bless them all, for they blessed all of us mightily!!
...- Opening bar to Beethoven's 5th God Bless all the men that jumped or went ashore at Normandy on June 6th!

GOD bless the TROOPS.
And those that serve with us.
My Dad was there D+3. He was a doctor - never would talk about what he saw. He was also among the first medical teams to enter the death camps -told my Mom in a letter, "I would have never believed a human being could do this to another human being."
My uncle by marriage was in the second wave at Omaha Beach. He said it was impossible to keep from stepping on bodies of soldiers from the first wave. My first cousin died at St. Mere Eglis on D-Day.
i knew a couple dozen guys who made the D-Day landings; now they are all gone. God bless them: They were the Greatest Generation.
They were indeed the "Greatest Generation."
A close friend of mine for 35 years or so passed on April 30 of this year. He was 89 years old.
He never spoke of his past or his youth. Only after he passed did his family release this
picture. It was dated 1944. They said he was at Normandy on D-Day but he never would
speak of any of it.
Rest in peace, Old Friend.
