Seventy years ago...

 Seventy years on now, hundreds of thousands of common men, did an uncommon thing on a day filled with uncommon valor and bravery.  Many are gone now, the rest will go to join their comrades in eternity sooner than we can all afford to lose.  Honor their acts.  Honor their memory.

Visit the US National D-Day Memorial if you can.  It is a stunning, somber place.


  1. Oh my Grandfather was there it seems so very long ago now but the memory is so important. Hug B

  2. It was indeed a day of valor. My, how our nation has changed since then. And not for the better.


I blog for myself, my family and friends, and of course the Hounds! I love to read your comments, and I always read them all.
