    June 6th 1944

    Many years ago

    The beaches of France

    Flowed with American blood

    On this day, a day

    That changed the path of history forever


    Please remember today, so many of those whom on this day so many years ago paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Also remember all our service men and women everywhere, that we as a country always support, respect our troop and we never forget those who have gone before us in preservation of our American liberties and freedom.


    God Bless America!


    Thereís a promise I need you to make
    While Iím gone you take care of the love
    And Iíll deal with the hate.

    Donít worry about me; Iíll be all right
    Just care for your children and sleep tight
    Iíll keep you safe on my watch tonight

    Unhappy

    You don't have to remind me, the problem is reminding our politicians and the general public. They seem to have short memories. Most can't even recall exactly what happened on 9/11. Sad. Peace be to the fallen..............

    It's a sad thing how fast people begin to forget things. Its appalling really, that's why we have to make sure we remember and we pass it down to our kids, etc. Its amazing once we begin to forget how history repeats itself.

    I could not imagine our political fat-cats supporting such an invasion today if it were necessary. The way we are pussy-footing around in Iraq is shameful. If we let our military do it's job, we could wipe out the insurgency in a couple of weeks. Of course every pilot or soldier or artillary man that killed a civilian would probably be brought up on charges by the politically correct liberals that want us all to sit around a campfire singing "Kumbya" while the enemy grows stronger. My Dad is a WWII vet, and I can remember when I was a kid hearing him and his buddies playing cards and talking about the war. They talked about it among themselves, but I never heard any of them talk about it to others. They were proud of their service and did what HAD to be done. There is no question that they gave us the freedom we have today, just as today's forces in Iraq and Afganistan are fighting to preserve that same freedom. Does anyone seriously think that we would not have been attacked any more if we hadn't taken military action? I'm proud of my Dad's service, just as I'm proud of those serving today.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    I did not wish to demean the contribution by any troops from anywhere. A lot of blood was spilled by Canadians, Englishmen, Polish, Free French and other allies. The point I was making is that the freedom we take for granted is the same freedom that many are unwilling to fight to keep.

    And as far as our "taking our sweet time joining the war," I do believe that there were a number of American flyers in RAF Spitfires defending London before 12/07/41, as well as a number flying P40s in China against the Japanese. Our Lend/Lease program supplied England with a large number of essentials prior to our joining the war. You're Welcome!
