Let us all remember the sacrifices made by our fellow Americans, both past and present, on the beaches and in the towns of Normandy 70 years ago today.

Agreed. We're free today because of those who sacrificed their lives.

My grandfather came ashore at Utah Beach on D+4 with the 9th HQ Artillery Battalion (9th Infantry Division). His division took part in 8 major campaigns (3 before Normandy) and spent 264 days in combat. They worked their way across France, through Belgium, eventually holding the line near Dessau, Germany for the last two weeks of the war in Europe. I wish I had learned more of his story before he died.
God bless them. I know that I, for one, would not have had the intestinal fortitude that those brave men had to storm those beaches.

True Heroes, I am watching a program on the History channel now, absolutely incredible stories by the survivors.
We get BBC TV in Ireland, and there has been great coverage of the D-Day landings every morning this last week. They have interviewed survivors of that terrible war, and their stories which are only being told now are amazing. I think the horrific things they experienced was the reason they were unable to talk abut or re-live the horror.
However the BBC never once mentioned the contribution the USA made to the success of the landings on the French coast. For any young person with no knowledge of the history of the D-Day landings one would think that they did it on their own. I thought it was a very one sided biased presentation of the facts.
I have the deepest respect for those men and women of WW II, if not for their sacrifices it is very scary to think of how they world would be.
I started out with nothing and now I only have half of that left !
God Bless them all.
